Canadian Landscape with A. Y. Jackson*

  • 1941 ----- color ----- 18 min ----- vhs
  • (Produced by the National Film Board of Canada) As a founding member of the Group of Seven, A. Y. Jacksons paintings of rolling, unpopulated land, winter scenes and the remote Arctic helped to shape the visual image of Canada. The camera accompanies Jackson on painting trips to the northern wilderness of Canada, where he discusses the whys and hows of sketching his subject matter. Back in his studio in Toronto, he describes the challenge of transforming (but never imitating) on canvas the essence of his sketches.
