In his 1988 catalogue of works by A.Y. Jackson commissioned by Eldorado Mining and Refining Ltd. (later Eldorado Nuclear Ltd., now a part of NorTerra Inc.), retired company president W.J. Bennett describes the oil sketch for this work as having been painted in 1951 and depicting the Great Bear River “mid-way between its source at Fort Franklin on Great Bear Lake and Fort Norman where it joins the Mackenzie River. In looking at this painting, one is conscious at once of the turbulence of the river which Jackson described in his diary. The flock of geese overhead is a nice touch. In late August the great migration southward from the breeding grounds along the Arctic coast was well underway.” When Jackson completed his commissioned works for Eldorado, they were deposited at the National Gallery of Canada for company officials to select from. This canvas went to the mining company and has hung on its walls until its consignment to Heffel, while the graphite drawing for this work was selected for the collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
