Description:
Lot # 303 Group of Seven Online auction , Alexander Young (A.Y.) Jackson , ALC CGP G7 OSA RCA RSA 1882 - 1974 Canadian Lake Superior oil on board circa 1923 8 1/2 x 10 1/2 in 21.6 x 26.7cm Provenance: Collection of Helen E. Band, Toronto By descent to the present Private Collection, Toronto Literature: A.Y. Jackson, A Painter’s Country: The Autobiography of A.Y. Jackson, 1958, page 46 A.Y. Jackson’s first formal sketching trip to Lake Superior was in autumn of 1921, following a Group of Seven trip to Algoma, when he accompanied Lawren Harris to the north shore of Lake Superior. He continued to paint Lake Superior in the company of Harris in the autumn of 1922, 1923, 1924 and 1925. The intrepid explorers camped in this wild and desolate landscape. They carefully set up their campsite, building a stone fireplace and filling a trench in their tent with hot embers from the fire to keep warm on cold nights. After the visual opulence of Algoma, Harris was inspired by the open vistas and sculptural rocky headlands of Lake Superior. While Harris looked out to the lake, Jackson was more interested in depicting the land surrounding it. Much of this area had been razed by forest fires, exposing the landscape we see here – rolling hills and rocky plateaus, with stumps and bare trunks of trees still standing. These survivors were featured by both artists, and Jackson recounted that on one occasion, they discovered an interesting stump almost hidden in the bush, which Harris included in his canvas North Shore, Lake Superior, giving it a lake background instead. Here Jackson was drawn to an expansive inland view with the lake in the distance, firmly planting his easel on the foreground rocky ledge. Jackson’s colour palette is characteristically dimensional – the ledges are depicted with tones of pink and mauve, while green swirls of mosses are animated by bright sparks of red and orange. The hillside beyond glows with dabs of autumn warmth, and his layers of clouds glow with flesh tones and greyish blue and green. As Jackson stated in his autobiography, “I know of no more impressive scenery in Canada for the landscape painter. There is a sublime order to it…inland there are intimate little lakes, stretches of muskeg, outcrops of rock…In the autumn the whole country glows with colour; the huckleberry and the pincherry turn crimson, the mountain ash is loaded with red berries, the poplar and the birch turn yellow and the tamarac greenish gold.” Lake Superior is an outstanding example of Jackson’s fresh, on the spot oil sketches of this “sublime” land. This work was once in the prestigious collection of Helen E. Band, the daughter of prominent Toronto collector Charles E. Band. Please note: this work is a split panel. Please note: this work is on preview at the Design Exchange, Toronto from November 18 - 23, 2017. ,

Description:
Alexander Young (A.Y.) Jackson ALC CGP G7 OSA RCA RSA 1882 - 1974 Canadian Spring, St-Hilarion oil on panel signed and on verso titled, dated circa 1930 on the gallery labels and inscribed with the Naomi Jackson Groves Inventory #2182 8 3/4 x 10 1/2 in 22.2 x 26.7cm Provenance: Mc Cready Galleries Inc., Toronto Galerie d'art Michel Bigué, Quebec Private Collection, Quebec Literature: Naomi Jackson Groves, A.Y.’s Canada, 1968, page 74 A.Y. Jackson’s legendary trips to the rural villages of the north and south shores of the St. Lawrence River were frequent during the 1920s and 1930s. The charming town of Saint-Hilarion is located on the inland road from Baie-Saint-Paul to La Malbaie; it was described by Jackson as being “like one of the Italian hill towns; the country around is cleared of trees, and the town stands on the top of the hill.” Jackson stayed with the Tremblay family in Saint-Hilarion, and Naomi Jackson Groves noted, “The town’s complete visibility for twenty miles all around made all the more touching the concern of old Monsieur Tremblay, at whose son’s house AY stayed, that the artist might not be able to find his way back from his day’s sketching in the field.” Here Jackson has captured a tapestry of rolling hills divided by traditional snake fences. Snow still settled at the base of the fences emphasizes long vertical lines, balanced by a horizontal patchwork of golden exposed earth and unmelted snow. The pleasing open panorama to distant mountains and the ambience of fields warming in the rays of spring sunshine make this a classic sketch from the area.

Description:
Lot 76 ALEXANDER YOUNG JACKSON, O.S.A., R.C.A. NOVEMBER MORN, NR. OTTAWA, 1945 oil on panel signed; also signed, titled and dated on the reverse 10.5 ins x 13.5 ins; 26.7 cms x 34.3 cms Provenance: Private Collection, Maple, ON Literature: Dennis Reid, Alberta Rhythm: The Later Work of A.Y. Jackson, Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, 1982. In this painting, A.Y. Jackson (1882-1973) returned to a motif which he had favoured before the First World War: a landscape receding behind a screen of trees. Around 1914, working with Tom Thomson in Algonquin Park, his paintings were closed in, due to the nature of the landscape. In the late 1930s and through the 1940s, Jackson was travelling a great deal. In addition to his annual painting trips to familiar spots (Quebec, Georgian Bay), he travelled to Alberta, the Northwest Territories, and British Columbia where he encountered a variety of different landscapes—broad expanses of land in the prairies with majestic mountains in the distance, for example. In the autumn of 1945, he had been to Kamloops, the Cariboo Region of British Columbia, and southern Alberta. Returning to more familiar territory, Jackson must have been struck by the contrast between what he had experienced in the west with the more cultivated landscape of eastern Ontario. He chose a view that captured that experience.
