A.Y. Jackson often sought subjects in land tilled and untamed, from the farms of the Saint Lawrence Valley to the rocky outcrops of Georgian Bay and the peaks of the Rockies. Jackson, especially, had a wanderer's heart, as these drawings, ranging from 1927 to the late 1940s, attest: views of the rolling hills of the Charlevoix are joined by quickly-sketched, annotated images of the rougher climes of Northern Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, and even the eastern Arctic.
