A.Y. Jackson’s early exposure to French Impressionism while studying at the Académie Julian in 1907 is clearly seen in this fine oil sketch, with its gorgeous pink, peach, mauve and blue tones in the snow. The location, the area around Saint-Tite-des-Caps, was one of Jackson’s favourites on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River, which he visited from the early 1930s until the mid-1940s. Jackson stayed at the old Hotel Tremblay in the village, sometimes with other artists such as Dr. Frederick Banting, foraying out on snowshoes with his painting kit to sketch on the spot, in spite of the cold. Jackson described Saint-Tite-des-Caps as “one of the places that we loved to paint…” A brilliant blue sky and warm, bright light illuminate the peaceful scene, and Jackson depicts snow gathered thickly on the rolling terrain, his brushwork emphasizing rhythm and texture. Advancing towards us on the winding track through the countryside is Jackson’s iconic horse and sleigh, reflecting his affection for this era in Quebec’s history, when time unfolded slowly and the traditional ways still held.
