Land And Portraits

Today I start off with another Group Of Seven painting, A.Y. Jackson's Winter, Quebec, from 1926.


Stepping away from the Group, I photographed other works of the period. This is Portrait Of Ethel Southam (Mrs. F.H. Toller), a 1938 painting by Lilias Torrance Newton.


Prudence Heward painted Girl On A Hill in 1928.


She also painted this one, titled Girl In Yellow Sweater, in 1936.


For today I finish off with a contemporary of the Group of Seven who had a long artistic career and a fascination with the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest. Emily Carr painted this one, British Columbia Landscape, in 1934.

  4. Nice series, William.
    The first two paintings are my favorites. The winter landscape could well be a Frisian landscape.
