Bright green, turquoise, yellow and mauve of the aurora borealis light up the sky above twisted lively pines on a north shore in this unique oil on canvas by Group of Seven member A.Y. Jackson. Jackson travelled and sketched extensively across Canada. In 1926, he traveled to Skeena River, British Columbia with ethnologist Marius Barbeau and artist Edwin Holgate. The Arctic via the SS Beothic was his destination in 1927 and 1930. His last Arctic trip was in 1965 with McGill University’s Alpine Club. He made many trips north: in 1938, 1949, 1950, 1951 and 1959 to Great Bear Lake in the Northwest Territories, Great Slave Lake and the Barren Lands in 1957 and 1959, and the Yukon in 1964.
