Description:
Alexander Young (A.Y.) Jackson ALC CGP G7 OSA RCA RSA 1882 - 1974 Canadian Algonquin Park near Canoe Lake oil on panel signed and on verso titled and inscribed "4489" 8 3/8 x 10 1/8 in 21.3 x 25.7cm Provenance: Private Collection, Quebec Acquired from the above in the late 1950s by the present Private Collection, USA Literature: A.Y. Jackson, A Painter's Country: The Autobiography of A.Y. Jackson, 1958, pages 28 and 31 In January of 1914 Jackson moved into the Studio Building in Toronto, sharing space with Tom Thomson. In Jackson's autobiography he relates that Thomson "talked of his beloved Algonquin Park so much that I decided to see it for myself. I arrived there late one night in February [1914] and was met at the railway station by Shannon Fraser, who ran the boarding house on Canoe Lake where Thomson made his headquarters. It was forty-five degrees below zero. Next morning it was milder, only twenty below, so I put on my snowshoes and went off exploring. I saw a patch of spruce woods that looked interesting, but I did not investigate it; a pack of wolves which had killed a deer started howling from the edge of the woods..." This was Jackson's first trip to Algonquin, and the fact that Thomson was already well known in the area provided him with all the connections he needed. Later that same year in September and October, he returned to Algonquin with Thomson for a six-week sketching trip. They traveled by canoe, camping at various lakes and painting. As the season drew on, Jackson wrote, "The maple, the birch and the poplar ran their gamut of colour and finally the tamarac tinted to shimmering gold; falling leaves and snow flurries made us aware that the sketching season was over." Jackson has been documented as returning to Algonquin Park in May of 1941 to appear in the National Film Board's documentary West Wind and much later in July of 1964 to Canoe Lake. However, considering the season depicted and the qualities of the work itself, the painting most likely dates from one of his 1914 trips. Jackson's brush-strokes are fluid, adept and assured, and his keen awareness of colour is in full play in the snow, with its delicate tones of pink, pale green, blue and mauve. It is a fine, fresh sketch executed out-of-doors, capturing the essence of this painting place which was so important to Thomson and members of the Group of Seven.

Description:
Alexander Young (A.Y.) Jackson ALC CGP G7 OSA RCA RSA 1882 - 1974 Canadian Farmland, Madoc, Ontario oil on board signed and on verso signed, titled and dated July 1966 10 1/2 x 13 3/8 in 26.7 x 34cm Provenance: Private Collection, Ontario A.Y. Jackson maintained a rigorous outdoor sketching schedule well into the 1960s. Despite his age - he was in his eighties - and the onset of M�ni�re's disease, which caused dizzy spells, he visited Lake Superior, the Gatineau region, Georgian Bay and various small towns in Quebec where the acquaintances he had made over the years welcomed him and saw to it that he was able to work without interruption. He sought out places where modernization had yet to take hold - preferring land that was shaped by natural forces, rather than those of mankind. This painting of farmland in Madoc shows just that: glacier-scoured rocks and windswept trees with no sign of a neat road or a new building. The soft greens of the land and trees make for a fine contrast with the distant blue hills, and they complement the pink accents that appear in the rocks and sky. Jackson was an exceptionally fine colourist throughout his life, and Farmland, Madoc, Ontario is evidence of his sensitivity to the subtle tones and hues of the natural world.

Jackson, A Painter’’s Country , Clarke, Irwin & Company, Toronto, 1958, pages 89-90 for a discussion of Jackson’’s visit to Hazelton, B.C. in the company of Edwin Holgate, 1926. Naomi Jackson Groves, A.Y.’’ s Canada , Clarke, Irwin & Company, Toronto, 1968, pages 152-170, for a discussion of Jackson’’s impressions of the villages along the Skeena River, B.C. Note: Groves refers to the work Jackson produced during his 1926 trip to Skeena as “a rich crop” of drawings. Furthermore, Jackson astutely identified the importance of Skeena country to the Canadian narrative and pleaded for its preservation as a unique opportunity to build and tell our own legends at a time when Canada was still searching for its sense of nationhood. According to a label on the reverse this work is titled on the back of the work and was given to Margaret Hayes in August 1926.
