The winter saw two of his finest and most important paintings, The Jack Pine and The West Wind – both painted in the studio. But he still painted outdoors as much as he could.
After a winter working on decorative panels, he had another successful and productive season painting outdoors in Algonquin Park.
More superb paintings from his most productive year, 1915, including wild flowers, different approaches to autumn, and a snowstorm.
In a very prolific year, he made a view finished paintings on canvas, but the great majority were plein air oil sketches, of which some of the best are shown here.
The first in a series of articles commemorating the centenary of his death. His oil sketches are simply brilliant.
In her final years, she concentrated on her writing. But her painting continued to innovate, and she produced some of her finest work, shown here.
She started with sculptured solids which then broke into swirling fluids. Then she patterned and structured using brushstrokes. More marvellous paintings.
She wasn’t a late developer at all: for over ten years her work was shunned. Then in 1924, this started to change, as did her painting.
In just a few years, she painted more than 200 works documenting the totems and villages of the First Nation peoples of the Pacific North-West.
Early paintings by this prolific and highly innovative painter who concentrated on totems of indigenous peoples of the Pacific North-west, and wonderful trees and forests.
