A.Y. Jackson was the Group of Seven’s most dedicated traveler and painted in most regions of the country. Like most of the members of the Group, Jackson is known for his paintings of Northern Canada. However, he is remembered best for his views of rural Quebec. The undulating rhythms of ploughed fields and sagging barns characterize Jackson’s mature painting style. Uninterested in critical or metaphysical issues, he devoted his long life to depicting the Canadian landscape with a deep sense of patriotic affection.
