Enjoying the colours, the textures, the shapes…

Here is a delightful picture of artist A Y Jackson, who is one of Canada’s famous “group of seven,” landscape painters.

His portrait is displayed at the Eagle Plains Hotel. 

One thing to mention:  Jackson died in 1974, two years before the completion of the Dempster Highway. At the time of this picture in 1964, it must have looked like a road ending suddenly in the middle of an open field.

Probably a great moment for this landscape artist!

 

BONUS: Just so you can appreciate it, here is one of Jackson’s paintings depicting the Yukon
