Naomi Jackson Groves, A.Y.’s Canada, 1968, page 66

“The stretch of eighty miles or so north-eastward from St. Joachim, either along the shoreline past Petite Rivière and Millard to Baie St. Paul, or up over the high plateau where St. Feréol and St. Tite des Caps are located in County Montmorency with the magnificent Laurentians to the north, and eastward from there into County Charlevoix, encloses another favourite region for AY’s winter-spring sketching expeditions during the years from 1923 onward.”

- Naomi Jackson Groves

A.Y. Jackson had a great affection for rural Quebec and its people, and here he includes a figure striding through the snowbanks to the house. Rhythm suffuses this evocative sketch, from the drifts of snow curling around the houses to the rolling hills and the undulating waves of clouds above, creating a subtle sense of movement and energy. Jackson’s colour is rich, with accents of peridot green around the door and windows of the house, pastel streaks in the snow, and a bright splash of orange in the object held by the figure. Winter scenes along the “artist trails” by the St. Lawrence are among the most sought-after images from Jackson’s Group of Seven period.
