Heffel is pleased to offer in this auction a selection of paintings by Group of Seven artist A.Y. Jackson from the renowned collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO). These works are being deaccessioned to benefit the museum’s acquisition fund, which will help diversify and broaden its collection. The AGO is known for its notable collection of Canadian Art, and particularly for its extensive holdings of the Group and their contemporaries. Jackson is well represented in their collection, and each of the paintings and oil sketches selected for auction at Heffel has a comparable work still remaining in their collection. These works have never been offered at auction before.

The year 1953 was an important one for Group of Seven painter A.Y. Jackson – a major retrospective of his work was mounted at the Art Gallery of Toronto, and the exhibition put him back in the national spotlight and garnered much praise from a new generation of art critics and artists. Jackson had become the elder statesman, respected as “the hearty outdoorsman, passionate painter, and outspoken champion of Canadian art,” as Wayne Larsen wrote.

In Jackson’s extensive explorations of his home province of Quebec, he visited the picturesque Gaspé Peninsula (along the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River) numerous times. He visited this area as early as the late 1920s, and in 1929 went on a driving trip there with fellow Group of Seven painter Lawren Harris. In this fine canvas, the last of winter’s snow across the hills and fields is melting away, showing bare earth emerging. Jackson’s marvelous sense of rhythm in the landscape can be seen here in the curve of the hills, the graceful wave of tree trunks and branches, and the undulation of the ground. Jackson’s pastel tones enliven the landscape, from the pink and plum notes in the banks of the hill, pale blues in the snow and shallow pools of water, and the bright sparks of orange at the base of the trees. The sense of the fresh and exciting change of the season is embodied in Jackson’s April Day, Ste. Marthe, Gaspé.
