A.Y. Jackson

Terre Sauvage

1913
In his review of the 1918 Royal Canadian Academy of Arts exhibition, critic Harold Mortimer-Lamb wrote that this artwork was "one of the most important paintings of landscape yet produced by a Canadian artist, and more clearly expresses the spirit and feeling of Canada than anything that has yet been done." Two years later, the Group of Seven formed with a mandate to express precisely the spirit that Jackson had captured.
