    I was so enthralled to see a film made in 1941 about AY Jackson. I have admired his paintings all my life, as well as those created by the other members of The Group of Seven, and Thom Thompson. Thank you for showing this. I will treasure all the insights you brought to us about sketching in the wilderness of Ontario, to the farms of Quebec. To actually see him paint, and hear his words was inspiring!

    Invaluable look at a great Canadian landscape painter at work. We even get to hear him talk about how he paints. Great work by the National Film Board!!!

    What a treat to see A.Y. Jackson doing what he loved. I am so thankful the NFB undertook this project. I wish I had tried to talk with him as he sat in his chair looking out on the landscape surrounding the McMichael Gallery many years ago!

    Great look at his technique, and it really solidified something I noticed about his work. It struck me, as a native of Alberta, that he wasn't really adequate to the task of painting Western Canada. Now I can connect why his genteel, fluid style doesn't work: Ontario and Quebec actually look like that.

    What a treasure to see a Canadian icon in his element. Bravo NFB!
