Acquired directly from the Artist by Percy and Gertrude Wells Hilborn, Ontario
By descent to the present Private Collection, Ontario

Percy and Gertrude Wells Hilborn of Preston, Ontario, were long-time friends of A.Y. Jackson, whom they first met at a friend’s neighbouring cottage on Wabeck Island on Georgian Bay. The Hilborn family and others supported Jackson financially by acquiring his paintings. In addition, the Hilborns acquired Early Autumn, Montreal River, Algoma by J.E.H. MacDonald, lot 106 in this sale, on its completion after his second trip to Algoma. In 1969, the Hilborn family donated the impressive early Jackson canvas First Snow, Algoma to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinburg.
Hilborn and Jackson were both keen outdoorsmen. They shared a log shack on Portage Island north of Wabeck, and went on many fishing, canoeing, and camping trips together. Lake Tyson is a commanding hilltop view of the powerful landscape in Ontario’s Killarney Provincial Park. Jackson captures its raw beauty in the flush of autumn colours, lit by the lake mirroring the light in the sky. This treasured painting, passed by descent to the present owner, is a testament to the longstanding admiration and patronage of Jackson by his dear friends.

Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000
