A.Y. Jackson accompanied various members of the Group of Seven on two trips to the Algoma district in 1920, staying at a cottage on Mongoose Lake in spring and autumn. Algoma, in northern Ontario, was ideal painting country, wooded with birch, maple, poplar, spruce and white pine, dotted with sparkling lakes, and traversed by streams with rapids and waterfalls. It was stunning countryside, and here Jackson captures two quite different views on this fine double-sided board—one of trees on an open snowy slope, the other deep woods. Winter, Algoma is a classic striking Group of Seven composition, full of movement—strips of clouds rush by on the diagonal, branches of trees seem to lift, and shadows roll down the hill. The verso, Wood Interior, is an entanglement of branches and tree trunks, full of colour. Jackson creates space in the work with a viewpoint across what is likely a small stream with rocks, staging the wall of growth. These images, preserved together in an intact double-sided board, show us the different aspects of Algoma, from an open, sublime landscape to an intimate forest close-up.
