H.G. Glyde

Miners' Cottages, Canmore, Alberta

1950
Driven by his regionalist commitment to depicting life in Alberta, Glyde portrays miners returning to their simple homes after a day’s work. This highly stylized composition conveys a comforting stillness reflected in the rolling landscape, the sombre hues and the luminous glow created by the low light of the setting sun.
