PROVENANCE
Private Collection
Acquired from the above by the present Private Collection, Toronto, 2007


The majority of the few known examples of A.Y. Jackson’s paintings done while visiting the Caribbean island of Tobago are dated to February and March of 1956. On-the-spot oil sketches such as this one document quiet moments in the lives of the local residents, and evocatively express the lush light of the tropical sun. They represent a rare and fascinating element of Jackson’s non-Canadian work.
