EXPOSITION
Canadian Group of Painters, Toronto, 1954


Harry and Jennie Ross, the original collectors of Driftwood, shared a property with A.Y. Jackson at Michipicoten Bay, on the east shore of Lake Superior near Wawa, Ontario. Jackson saw this land, with its finely crafted lodge and two sleeping cabins, in 1954, and in 1955 purchased it in partnership with Jennie, who had been his student at the Banff School of Fine Arts in 1945. This property had 360 feet of lakefront, and the bay had four beaches. From 1954 to 1966, Jackson made many summer trips to this location, and it was a treasured painting place for him. Jackson based this fine canvas on an oil sketch he executed on location at Sandy Beach, its impressive collection of driftwood originating from log booms being transported to Sault Ste. Marie. This superlative canvas exudes the fresh, thrilling atmosphere of a day in the Canadian wilderness. The expertise of this Group of Seven master is fully present in the elements of this compelling composition: the pattern of wood criss-crossing the stony beach and rock formations, the rich sensation of sunlight, the deep-blue waves lapping the shore and, on the horizon, the sculpted cloud formation.
