Franklin Carmichael

Snow Clouds

1938
In 1932 Carmichael became the head of graphic and commercial art at the Ontario College of Art, which gave him more time to paint. In this work, he depicts the rolling hills of a far-reaching landscape and the fluctuating snow clouds, emphasizing the play of light and dark in bands of colour. The rays of light unite the composition and suggest a connection to the divine.
