Yvonne McKague Housser was an important early female modernist. She left Toronto in 1921 to study in Paris, at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière, Académie Colarossi and Académie Ranson. On her return, another major influence on her work was the Group of Seven, whom she exhibited with in their 1928, 1930 and 1931 shows. Housser stated, “You have to be true to yourself but at the same time understand, or try to, the world of today in all its manifestations…The artist is and always has been ahead of his time…I was brought up at the beginning of this new age of painting…” Old House, Baie St. Paul shows her absorption of the Group’s tenets in her strong definition of form in the houses and the clouds, which hang like islands in the sky, and in the fresh, clear atmosphere and emphatic colours. It is a bold work painted with adept, textural brushwork, and a particularly striking example of Housser’s work from the 1920s.
