This silkscreen was originally included in the "60 Canadian Landscapes" series of Sampson-Matthews prints first sold in 1947 to 1953. The Sampson-Matthews print program was a result of collaboration between Charles Matthews, General Manager and Vice-President of Sampson-Matthews Ltd.; A. J. Casson, the Chief Designer at Sampson-Matthews Ltd. and member of the Group of Seven; H.O. McCurry, director of the National Gallery of Canada; and A.Y. Jackson, member of the Group of Seven. The primary goal of the print program was to create sponsored reproductions of Canadian artwork for display at Canadian offices around the world, as a reminder of what we were fighting for during World War II. When World War II concluded, Sampson-Matthews encouraged the continued production of the silkscreens series, including the "60 Canadian Landscapes" series. The Sampson-Matthews prints were a notable success, enhancing the public understanding of Canadian art.
This print is based on the iconic 1929 painting by Emily Carr in the collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario, Church In Yuquot Village (Indian Church). This painting was specifically chosed by Casson for the Sampson-Matthew print project.
