A.Y. Jackson’s first sight of the North Shore of Lake Superior was with Lawren Harris in 1921, following a Group of Seven boxcar trip to Algoma. Rather than the wide vistas that captivated Harris, Jackson gravitated to the rocky hills above, looking back to layers of land and more intimate shores, such as Jackfish Lake near Terrace Bay. After this pivotal trip, the North Shore of Lake Superior replaced Algoma as a favourite Group painting place. Jackson returned every year until 1925, and in October of 1924 painted at Jackfish Lake. In his autobiography, Jackson expressed his great regard for Lake Superior, writing, “I know of no more impressive scenery in Canada for the landscape painter. There is a sublime order to it, the long curves of the beaches, the sweeping ranges of hills, and headlands that push out into the lake. Inland there are intimate little lakes, stretches of muskeg, outcrops of rock.” In this classic Group period sketch, Jackson depicts the vital contrast of grey and brown hills and rocks against the glow of autumn foliage, and captures the rugged essence of this stunning landscape.
