Doris McCarthy had a 42-year career as an art teacher, and during that time she traveled both within and outside of Canada on sabbaticals and summer breaks. The year she retired from teaching, 1972, was a momentous one, as she took the first of her annual trips to the Arctic, which continued until she was 94. She was singularly devoted to the wonders of the Canadian North, and her paintings reflect her passionate response to these landscapes. Pond Inlet was often her base, and she explored numerous sites in and around Baffin Island. Cloud Break—Beagle Passage features the strong, sculpted forms of icebergs floating in the passage. McCarthy’s palette of predominantly green, blue and mauve is cool and refreshing, and her use of atmospheric effects is sensitively handled, with the haze over the mountains obscuring the layers farther back. The entire scene is cloaked in a delicate mist of purple and blue. As Globe and Mail art critic John Bentley Mays wrote, each of McCarthy’s northern landscapes was “a visible document of Miss McCarthy’s inward apprehension of what it is to stand on the very edge of the world.”
