I left off yesterday with A.Y. Jackson and his time spent living in the Ottawa Valley. This is his painting Fitzroy Harbour, dating to 1969.
These two paintings are also by Jackson. At top is Near Perth. And below it is Water's Edge, Duhamel, Quebec.
These snowshoes had been given by Jackson to the Firestones, a mark of the friendship between the artist and the couple.
Here are but two of the numerous Jackson sketches in the collection.
And another gift to the Firestones by Jackson: a sketch box he'd used extensively in the field.
Here we have more on contemporaries of the Group of Seven whose work is part of the Firestone Collection.
Paintings here include works by Kathleen Daly, Graham Norwell, George Pepper, and Anne Savage.
While here we have works by Emily Carr, Alan C. Collier, Andre Bieler, Yvonne McKague Housser, and David B. Milne.
