Group of Seven painter A.Y. Jackson was known for his constant traveling across Canada in search of landscape subjects. Certain painting places became recurrent favourites, such as Quebec villages on the north and south shores of the St. Lawrence, the Northwest Territories, and Lake Superior and Georgian Bay in Ontario. Beginning in 1948, the Gatineau region of Quebec, near Ottawa, became part of a new cycle for Jackson, and by 1955, he had departed the famous Studio Building in Toronto and moved into a new studio in Manotick, making the Ottawa-Gatineau area his base. Thereafter, he made frequent sketching trips throughout the Gatineau region until 1967.

In this golden autumn scene, Jackson’s characteristic feeling for rhythm in the landscape is evident – the hills and fields roll, and even the clouds undulate. The sun-drenched stooks of hay are an animated focal point, with their feathery tops bending in the breeze. Fall colours in the trees and the weathered farm building add to the atmosphere. Jackson’s affection for rural Quebec is evident in this peaceful scene, which radiates the contentment of a harvest completed before the winter to come.
