Artist Alexander Young Jackson
Title Mountains Near Jasper
Media oil on wood panel
Dated ca. 1914
Size 8 x 10.25 in. / 20.3 x 26 cm.

Notes
signed lower left; bears title on gallery label verso; framed

Reference
'Full of eagerness to explore new terrain, and maybe even earn an honest dollar or two AY had come west in company with JW Beatty.. Both artists were on a tentative commission arranged by Beatty to prepare scenic studies along the construction sites of the Canadian Northern Railway... Judging by the full-brushed, richly gleaming mountain and cloud effects of the one or two oil sketches known to remain of that 'whole raft', it is a pity that AY later 'kept throwing the sketches into the furnace until there were none left'. Only the ones already given away were saved.'; thankfully this sketch of Mountains Near Jasper was conserved and lived safely in Alberta with the family of artist John Davenall Turner until now; excerpt from A.Y.'s Canada by AY Jackson and Naomi Groves Jackson, published by Clarke, Irwin and Company Limited, 1968 pg. 148; Naomi Jackson Groves and inventory #844 inscription verso

Provenance
Canadian Art Galleries, Calgary, label verso; from the estate of John Davenall Turner, Calgary; private collection, Calgary; John Davenall Turner was the first gallery to show Group works in Calgary, and he became great friends with AY during that time. He couldn't sell most of the G7 paintings so he leased / rented them out to people for very little on a monthly basis
