BIBLIOGRAPHIE
Dennis Reid, Alberta Rhythm: The Later Work of A.Y. Jackson, Art Gallery of Ontario, 1982, page 10


A.Y. Jackson sketched annually in the Laurentians and the surrounding hilly terroir of Quebec. One of his favourite areas to visit and paint was Saint-Urbain, and he was passionate about the culture, people and unique character of this landscape. Jackson’s acclaim as a painter was derived from the immediacy of his plein air sketches. On occasion, Arthur Lismer critiqued his good friend’s work and once perceptively stated, “There is something cosmic in his interpretation of the movement of earth and sky and weather forms in his paintings, but he never pushes the medium to extravagant expression. Always it seems that he grasps the fundamental unity of spirit and technique.” Hills, St-Urbain perfectly exemplifies Jackson’s mastery of these elemental forms. It is an important and beautifully composed sketch from the Group of Seven period, in which he captures the bold sensation of sunlight and delicate tonalities of colour in snow and shadows, as well as the strength and rhythm of the land.
