The motif of birch trees was one well favoured by A.Y. Jackson. Birches appear in his paintings of Algonquin Park, Ontario, such as the exquisite 1914 canvas Birches in Winter, and in sketches made on the spot in Cacouna and Ripon, in Quebec, in the early 1920s. Their graceful bare, slender trunks, white with dark markings, are striking, especially on a sunny winter’s day, when their shapes cast blue shadows across the snow covering the contoured ground. This Group of Seven period work with its multiple layers of trees, through which we see blue sky above and mountains beyond, is a classic Group composition. While on a sketching trip, Jackson would sometimes run out of boards in his sketch box and would then paint on both sides. These boards were often split and offered as separate works, so it is highly desirable for the collector to be able to acquire an intact board with finished paintings both sides. The other side, a view of more open country with a stream and melting ice, shows Jackson’s refined Impressionist sense of colour in its delicate greens and mauves.
