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, A.Y. Jackson’s Le Calvaire or Wayside Cross seemed to capture a certain mood.
Le Calvaire or Wayside Cross, Saint-Urbain is one of many paintings featured in our book, Painting Canada, focussing on the work of Canada’s notorious Group of Seven, and the subject of exhibition running now at Dulwich Picture Gallery. The exhibition finishes on the 8th January, so get your (ice)skates on. DH
