- The Artist
An avid outdoorsman, A.Y. Jackson painted “Red Maple” to reveal Canada’s hidden treasures of delicate, flame-bright foliage and rolling rapids. This landscape was painted in Jackson’s studio in 1914, based on a sketch of the Oxtongue River in Algonquin Park. The work is representative of Jackson’s (1882 – 1974) membership in the Group of Seven artists, who broke the misconception that the Canadian wilderness was too rugged and untamed to be painted. Symbolic of Canada’s natural appeal, this piece embraced emerging nationalist sentiments, which were intensified by the outbreak of World War I several months before it was created.
Artist and avid outdoorsman A.Y. Jackson (1882 – 1974) blazed trails through Canada’s wilderness in bold Impressionistic landscapes that revealed the country’s spectacular natural beauty. As a young boy, Jackson began his artistic training at a lithography company. He later studied at the Julien Academy in Paris and the Art Institute in Chicago. He was a founding member of the Group of Seven artists, who depicted areas of the Canadian wilderness previously considered too wild and rugged to be painted. Jackson was instrumental in uniting the artists of Montreal and Toronto, and was recognized during his lifetime for his role in the development of Canadian art.
