In 1911, Anne Savage’s father took the Canadian National Railway to Lake Wonish, a small lake northwest of Montreal in the Laurentian woods. He was looking for a place to build a cottage, as Métis Beach—where he already owned a property—was becoming too crowded, and John Savage, then in his 70s, wanted solitude. A family cottage he subsequently built on Lake Wonish provided that, and in addition, Anne built a separate studio on the property. The views from her studio window and vistas of the surrounding landscape figure prominently in her work. Early spring was one of her favourite times to paint, and this bright sketch depicts the lake through a screen of slender green trees, with a reddish hill in the distance. Colour harmonies were Savage's specialty, and the bright greens and strong orange-reds in this charming, Art Nouveau-influenced work perfectly complement one another. These hues are given breathing room by the colour of the ice on the lake between them, which has hints of pale blue and pink in it that tie the whole scene together beautifully.

Estimation : $20,000 - $30,000
