A.Y. Jackson, A Painter’s Country: The Autobiography of A.Y. Jackson, 1958, pages 63 – 64

In his autobiography A.Y. Jackson wrote: “One of the places we loved to paint was St. Tite des Caps on Cap Tourmente, a high plateau, forty miles below Quebec. It was not one of the old villages, but it lay in a hollow encircled by hills, and we could look down on it from several directions.” Jackson visited Saint-Tite-des-Caps on numerous trips during the 1930s and 1940s, often with other artists. His last trip took place in 1946 – by then, he had begun to disapprove of the modernization he saw taking place. But for many years the area’s vintage charm for Jackson lay in the rustic nature of the village and its rural surrounds, with old barns settled into the rhythm of the land and quiet roads traveled by horse and sleigh. The Creek, St. Tite des Caps is a particularly exquisite oil sketch. Jackson’s loaded brush-strokes create strong texture in the work, which features a palette rich with pigment ranging from pink and mauve to pale green and deep blue. With its brilliant sunlit atmosphere and shadows raking across snow tinted with many colours, The Creek is a classic winter Quebec scene by Jackson.
