A.Y. Jackson

Evening, Georgian Bay

c. 1910
In this early sketch at Georgian Bay, Jackson animates the evening sky with an expressive array of vertical brushstrokes set against the darkened forms of two islands. Though the artist’s later paintings tend to focus more on foregrounds and tree formations, this work demonstrates his interest in capturing the effects of diminishing light.
