This charming rustic scene could be a view of a cabin in Algonquin Park in 1914 or in Georgian Bay in 1920 – Frederick Varley was accompanied on both trips by his wife Maude – or it could be a back view of the Lynn Valley forest ranger’s cabin in British Columbia which Varley depicted in the 1920s. Tents and simple cabins were often the base for explorations into the stunning landscapes he and the other members of the Group of Seven pursued.
