Abrupt granite rising from the clearest

water in all the world. Crowned with a tangled diadem of blue green foliage…

And always beneath birdsong the sound of water.

—Douglas LePan

Georgian Bay Pool is an exceptional depiction of one of the most beloved painting places of the Group of Seven. Just shy of 100 years ago, Arthur Lismer painted his iconic canvas September Gale, Georgian Bay, which is in the collection of the National Gallery of Canada. The power of that painting and the inspiration Lismer sourced from this area followed him throughout his career. Georgian Bay is one of the largest bodies of fresh water in the world, and its windswept pines, towering cliffs, and small islands and inlets have historically been a deep source of inspiration for various Canadian artists and poets. Lismer’s depiction of this tranquil pool surrounded by dramatic rock cliffs is stunning. The wide-angle panoramic vantage point in Georgian Bay Pool gives the impression of a much larger composition, paralleling the breadth and splendour of this region.

There is an unfinished sketch on verso.
