The location of this en plein air oil sketch by A.J. Casson is believed to be Lake Rosseau. Located in Ontario’s Muskoka region, the lake not only has the rugged white pines depicted – one of Casson’s most iconic subjects – but also aligns with his known sketching locations of this period. The area was home to a strong Finnish community, the reason the painting spent many years abroad. It was inherited by the descendant of a relative who was employed for years by a prominent Toronto family before eventually returning to their native Finland. This connection is very interesting, given the strong influence of Nordic painting on members of the Group of Seven, who were searching for a means to express the power of the northern Canadian landscape. The style of this work is typical of Casson’s on-site technique during the earliest years he was associated with the Group, and the textured paint application and Tom Thomson-esque counterpoint of the warm tone of the board beneath speak to the emerging style of this important artist.
