Around 1922, Canadian Impressionist Maurice Cullen built a cabin in the Laurentians at Lac Tremblant, and from there, as Hughes de Jouvancourt writes, he "began the series of landscapes which would bring fame to three small rivers: Cachée, Diable and the Rivière du Nord." His long meditation on the beauty of these rivers in winter in canvases such as Early Snowfall, Caché River was extraordinary. A.K. Prakash writes, "He painted these landscapes with pearls of ice melted by the sun, lost in the mist of lakes, rimed with frost, and covered with snow. They have an atmosphere of dreams and secret places that few other artists have been able to attain." Early Snowfall, Caché River is an outstanding Laurentians canvas, recognized by its inclusion in the 1982 - 1983 retrospective that traveled to museums across Canada.
Cullen was a seminal figure who inspired other artists to leave behind the stifling air of academicism and depict nature with freedom of expression. Indeed, Cullen was so important to the Group of Seven that A.Y. Jackson declared, "To us he was a hero."
