J.W. Beatty was among the Canadian artists who traveled to Paris to study, later exploring Europe. When Beatty returned to Toronto in 1909, a pivotal trip to northern Ontario that year changed the direction of his art. He left his previous affinity to European painting behind, declaring that the landscape he saw there inspired him “to...forget the Old World for the rest of my days.” He became a champion of the Canadian landscape, and was an early influence on Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. He accompanied Thomson on sketching trips, lived in the famous Studio Building on Severn Street in Toronto, and went with A.Y. Jackson and J.E.H. MacDonald on a sketching trip to Algonquin Park. In this fresh and exhilarating pochade, executed on the spot on Toronto Island, Beatty contrasts the dramatic effects of the storm over the lake with the bright beach, peridot highlights in the waves, and vivid touches of colour in the trees and people on shore.
