Grey And Gold

I begin today with Owl's Head Mountain, by Robert S. Duncanson, a landscape painting from 1864. 

Kakabeka Falls, Kamanistiquia River is the title of this 1882 painting by Lucius O'Brien, depicting a mighty waterfall in Ontario's north.

Here we have another Cornelius Krieghoff painting. Winter Landscape, Laval dates to 1862.

While this is another Lucius O'Brien work, from 1880, titled Sunrise On The Saguenay, Cape Trinity.

Ozias Leduc painted Still Life, Study By Candlelight in 1893.

A Daffodil is a 1910 Impressionist work by Laura Muntz Lyall.

I finish today with Grey and Gold, a 1910 painting by Florence Carlyle.


  1. These images are lovely. I especially like the Cape Trinity one.

  2. The Daffodil painting is my favorite. Impressionist style is my cuppa. Love the post.

  3. I have never heard of him, but I like those paintings of Cornelius Krieghoff.

  4. ...the landscape paintings are my favorites.

  5. Krieghoff really captured the landscape didn't he?

  6. Beautiful landscapes! Have a great day and happy new week!

  7. Me gusta la pintura paisajista. Son muy bellos los cuadros.

  8. @Italiafinlandia: it's well done.

    @Joan: that stands out to me.

    @roentare: I like impressionism.

    @Iris: I think so too.

    @Jan: I have a book on him on my shelves.

    @Tom: they stand out.

    @Francisco: thanks.

    @David: something in the Canadian wild got to him and burrowed deep down.

    @Eileen: thank you.

    @Ventana: thanks.

    @Bill: they are.

  9. I like all of these old treasures.

  10. I like the girl in the bonnet!
    Are you keeping cool? What heat...

  12. I like The Daisy the best. I noticed a historic sign outside a condo tower here on Bloor St near U of T saying that it had been the site of Lucius O'Brien's studio but had never seen his work.

  13. I do like the Study by Candlelight.

  14. @anvilcloud: as do I.

    @Magiceye: indeed.

    @Marie: definitely.

    @Jennifer: mostly trying to lie low.

    @Carol: thank you.

    @RedPat: not surprising.

    @Revrunner: it's a good still life.

  15. A Daffodil is precious and a lovely transition to more modern times.

  16. These are great. Fabulous light, reminds me of the Hudson river school.

  17. The lighting on that still life is really beautiful -- and hard to do!

  18. I think in the first painting that maybe it's similar to how NZ use to look

  19. Owls head mountain is superb.
