A.Y. Jackson

Winter, Quebec

1926
A founding member of the Group of Seven and the first president of the Beaver Hall Group, Jackson returned numerous times to his native province of Quebec, where he sought seclusion and peace in the picturesque landscape. This winter scene evokes a sense of nostalgia and familiarity, as well as a connection between the artist and his subject. The canvas conveys the lyrical beauty of this village – a perfect place for repose.
