A.Y. Jackson, Le Calvaire or Wayside Cross, Saint-Urbain, 1929, Oil on canvas, 53.3 x 66 cm, Private collection
We couldn’t let Christmas go by without a painting of the week involving snow and vaguely resembling the sledging scene in Citizen Kane – so we didn’t. About the artist, A.Y. Jackson was a Canadian painter and a founding member of the Group of Seven.
Le Calvaire or Wayside Cross, Saint-Urbain is one of many paintings featured in our book, Painting Canada, focussing on the work of the Group of Seven, published in September and now being reprinted. Alternately, you have until the 8th January to see the Painting Canada exhibition at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, so get your (ice)skates on.
