Jim Waddington, In the Footsteps of the Group of Seven, 2013, the larger circa 1920 oil entitled Evening - Georgian Bay, in the collection of the Vancouver Art Gallery, reproduced page 24

The dappled colour and light of Impressionism had a strong influence on Canadian art at the turn of the century and into the 1920s. Its interest in the effects of light, the beauty of atmosphere and subtleties of mood aligned well with the ideals of the members of the newly formed Group of Seven. This energetic depiction of Georgian Bay is a fine example of Impressionism’s influence on the work of Frederick Varley. A supremely sensitive and skilled colourist, Varley has painted the rocky shoreline of Georgian Bay lapped by brilliant blue water and cast in a golden light. Multi-hued swirls and scattered daubs of paint dance off into the distance, conveying the impression of a sunrise or sunset filled with colourful light. It is a tranquil scene showing an expanse of nature, with wide open spaces unencumbered by aspects of the civilized world.
There is an unfinished graphite sketch of a child on verso.
This work is #403 in the Varley Inventory listing.

Estimation : $30,000 - $40,000
