Estate of A.Y. Jackson
Sold sale of Important Canadian Paintings, Drawings, Watercolours, Books and Prints: Works from the Estate of A.Y. Jackson, Sotheby's & Co. (Canada) Ltd., October 21, 1974, lot 38
Collection of Mr. and Mrs. William Barrie Waite, Vancouver

This work and the following three lots are property from the collection of Mr. and Mrs. William Barrie Waite. As the CEO of Siemens Canada (known for engineering and electronics), William Waite (1937 – 2007) had a positive impact on the lives of thousands. He had a passion for Canada and its people, and he put tremendous energy into attracting trade partners and foreign investment, advising political leaders and lobbying educational policy-makers about the need to invest in our youth and trade apprenticeship programs. The Waites' love for Canada can be seen in their collection of Canadian Art.

Near Port Coldwell, Lake Superior was part of a group of works from the Estate of A.Y. Jackson sold at Sotheby's Canada on October 21, 1974. As well as Jackson gems such as this, the collection included works by other artists he collected, such as Lawren Harris. They were described in the auction catalogue foreword by Jackson’s niece Naomi Jackson Groves as “a very limited sample of Jacksoniana never to recur again and of three-fold interest: initially for who did them, centrally for who owned them, and finally for who will add them to their collections.”

In 1923, Jackson accompanied Harris to the Port Coldwell area of Lake Superior, producing this superb sketch of the hills above the lake with riotous fall colours, which awaits placement with its next fortunate collector.

Estimate: $25,000 - $35,000 CAD
