At the University of Toronto, Frederick Banting was a medical colleague of Dr. Harold M. Tovell, to whom he gave this work. Dr. Tovell married Ruth Massey of the Harris/Massey family, and Dentonia Farm, their large property in Toronto, became a centre of Canadian culture and art. The Tovells were patrons of the Group of Seven, and Arthur Lismer and A.Y. Jackson sketched at this farm on weekends, as did Banting. Village in Winter was displayed at Dentonia.

In the evolution of renowned medical researcher Banting into a fine painter, his great friend, Group of Seven artist A.Y. Jackson, played a prominent role. They made many painting trips together to archetypal Quebec towns such as the one portrayed in this richly atmospheric sketch. Jackson shared his knowledge gained through travels to Europe and his hearty enjoyment of these rural communities. Village in Winter captures the rustic charm of the simple, brightly painted houses with strong brush-strokes, boldly using the exposed wood panel to define form. Ultimately, Banting became an important participant in the fresh, direct approach to landscape painting led by the Group that changed Canadian art forever.
