After the Group of Seven dissolved in the early 1930s, A.Y. Jackson became one of the driving forces behind the Canadian Group of Painters, a larger organization that included artists from coast to coast. Jackson severed his ties with the Royal Canadian Academy – as a modernist, he could not remain a part of it. He remained based at the Studio Building in Toronto, and continued his peripatetic life, crossing the country from Quebec to British Columbia and up to the Northwest Territories on his painting trips. Jackson’s formal abilities remained focused on revealing the essential spirit of the land he contemplated. River in Autumn is a quintessential Jackson image – it could be Georgian Bay, the Great Bear Lake region, or northern Quebec. Wild and elemental, it juxtaposes fluid water and sky with scrub trees and solid rock formations. Jackson’s characteristic rhythm is found in the zigzag course of the river and the curve of the trees shaped by wind. Shimmering light on the water and a strong contrast between blues and a rich tapestry of autumn oranges and reds laid down with a painterly brush-stroke convey the vitality of this fine autumn scene.
