This silkscreen is part of a group that were produced by the well-known commercial art firm, Sampson and Matthews Limited of Toronto. Some of the reproductions were commissioned by private collectors who wished to have duplicate copies of works in their collections. Many were commissioned by the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa in a series of "60 Canadian Landscapes for Schools, Offices and Homes." This series was commissioned following an increased demand for fine Canadian works of art and with the realization of the cultural and educational value of fine Canadian paintings. All of the works were "approved for silkscreen reproduction by a committee acting on behalf of the Board of Trustees of the National Gallery and composed of A.Y. Jackson…, A.J. Casson… and H.O. McCurry…, Director of the National Gallery of Canada." Some were chosen from existing works in museums and art galleries and others were commissioned specifically for this project.

All of the silkscreens were produced using the original, conventional silkscreening techniques. They were printed using oil paint in 12 to 15 colours on a heavy paper board. Among other well-known commercial artists, Franklin Carmichael and A.J. Casson were both employed by Sampson and Matthews for over 20 years. Franklin Carmichael began working at Sampson and Matthews in 1922 as head designer. In 1926 A.J. Casson began his 32-year career at Sampson and Matthews, originally under the supervision of Carmichael.
