Tovell, Toronto, 1925 Ruth Massey Tovell, Toronto, 1947 Freeman and Rosita Tovell, Ottawa, 1949 By descent to the present Private Collectors Literature: Augustus Bridle, "'School of Seven' Exhibit Is Riot of Impressions," Toronto Star Weekly, January 10, 1925 Peter Mellen, The Group of Seven, 1970, page 119 Charles C. Hill, The Group of Seven: Art for a Nation, National Gallery of Canada, 1995, a similar 1924 work entitled Morning reproduced page 164 Exhibited: Art Gallery of Toronto, Group of Seven Exhibition of Paintings, January 9 - February 2, 1925, catalogue #34 Albright Art Gallery, Buffalo, Exhibition of Paintings by Canadian Artists, September 14 - October 14, 1928, catalogue #26 A.Y. Jackson loved winter. Nicknamed “Father Snowshoes,” he was undaunted by cold or snow, and as a result we have many images by him, such as this important work from 1924 that records the beauty of our long and varied Canadian winters. Winter Morning hung in the 1925 Group of Seven exhibition, and was selected for inclusion in the important Exhibition of Paintings by Canadian Artists show that traveled to Buffalo, New York, in 1928. It is a fine example of Jackson's Group period works, and depicts a rural scene in Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec. Jackson was especially fond of this region and it was one of his regular haunts. We can see that the snow was still deep enough to require the use of a sleigh, which we see harnessed to a horse that looks towards the home, anticipating the driver's approach. The bright orange-red sleigh is a perfect contrast to the varied palette of colour that Jackson has used to depict the snow, painted in delicious blends of pink, blue and white. In an article in the Toronto Star Weekly in January of 1925 when the work was first shown, Augustus Bridle urged readers to attend the show, writing, "If life has become for you a monotonous slate-coloured grey; if you have been defeated at municipal elections, jilted in love...if you are suffering from complexes and reflexes, repressed emotion and colour blindness; if you imagine there is no red paint left in the world and that the coming solar eclipse will throw a perpetual pall of blackness on this planet, there is only one cure for you. Go to the exhibition of the school of seven, which opens today at the Grange." He goes on to discuss Jackson's work, praising his natural style and honest approach, "If you go to the show to get furiously indignant at the insults these nature mystics hurl at nature, don't look at Mr. Jackson. He makes nature, even that eccentric northern nature look natural, with a real red sleigh in the very centre of the road." The effect of sunlight on snow, in all of its variations, was something that Jackson understood from first-hand experience. Arthur Lismer stated: "He paints from visual contact with nature, and his selective range and summarizing technique is amazingly alert and vigorous. It comes from a prodigious experience of analysis and rejection, and of using pigment or the medium of paint as an emotional instrument itself to express the textures, the plastic forms, and environmental character of things seen. He solves most of his problems on the spot from experience, not from theory or fashion." Jackson's rendering of the shadows in the snowbanks in Winter Morning is particularly appealing, as swirls of blue and pink curl their way down the hillside to the farm below. The dormant forest breaks through the snow in places at the top of the hillside, and the trees below the hill remain leafless. Jackson painted a number of important winter scenes that now belong to some of the most prominent art institutions in Canada. A Quebec Village, from 1921, is in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada, along with Frozen Lake, Early Spring, Algonquin Park, from 1918. Lismer, in his comments on Jackson's visual record of rural Canada, further noted: "He is not a city artist, he reflects no studio introspections, no quick decisions to produce a painting in terms of any mechanical, psychological or abstract echo of something theoretic or of some social commentary. This is no reflection of the vitality and meaning of contemporary painting. It means that Jackson is not that kind of painter. He has an out looking eye not an in looking mind." Jackson's paintings capture images of Canada with the authenticity of an ethnographer. In his work, he faithfully and accurately records the details of the homes and villages, sleighs and wagons, wooden snake fences and wayside crosses. During his life, he bemoaned the straightening of roads and the loss of the picturesque wooden barns that he so loved; they were being steadily replaced by modern structures that Jackson found far less interesting. It was old rural Quebec that he sought to paint, thus works like Winter Morning serve as an evocative and heartfelt testament to a bygone time.

Alexander Young Jackson Canadian CGP, G7, OSA, RCA [1882-1974] ONWARD RANCH; 1949 oil on panel 10.5 x 13.25 in. (26.7 x 33.7 cm) signed; titled & dated verso Provenance: Loch Gallery, Winnipeg (label verso) “It will always go onward” were the words used by Charles Eagle to describe his ranchland near William's Lake, BC. The ranch was established during the Cariboo Gold Rush, situated next to the first gold miner's trail. In the early days, miners often sought refuge there during the coldest winter days. The ranch was purchased and transformed in 1920 by Charles George Cowan and his wife Vivien, who was a strong patron of the arts. Vivian studied at the Banff School of Fine Arts, developing a long-term family friendship with A.Y. Jackson. Jackson stayed at the Cowan's Onward Ranch during many summers, often for weeks at a time. The ranch became a place of significance in the arts community. It was a regular haunt for artists, musicians and creative people, and during one of Jackson's trips, saw the inauguration of the Cariboo Arts Society.
