About the Work

Lawren Harris and A.Y. Jackson invited new Group member Franklin Carmichael to the North Shore of Lake Superior three separate times in 1925, 1926 and 1928. On these trips, both Carmichael and Harris produced some of the finest examples of work from the Group period. By 1928 Carmichael’s handling was concise and his use of light effects was refined. The presence of light breaking through the clouds in a showering manner heightens the dramatic impact of the land masses that frame the water. Condition Report available.
