AJ Casson Art

We are excited to announce the acquisition of a remarkable oil painting titled Autumn Tapestry, Madawaska River by A.J. Casson, one of Canada's most celebrated artists. This painting was purchased in the late 1950s and has been meticulously cared for over six decades in a family collection. This oil-on-board measures 12" x 15" and beautifully captures the tranquil beauty of one of Ontario's most treasured waterways.

With its rich history and stunning natural beauty, the Madawaska River has long inspired artists, adventurers, and nature lovers alike. Winding through the rugged landscapes of the Canadian Shield, the river has played a vital role in the region's logging history, Indigenous heritage, and recreational activities. Casson's exceptional talent in depicting the Canadian landscape was a motivating factor when his mentor, Franklin Carmichael, invited him to join the Group of Seven in 1926.

This artwork has been inspected, authenticated, and well-preserved in a non-smoking home. It is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Canadian art history. The painting is documented in multiple signed appraisal documents throughout the decades, which will be provided to the buyer.

Take advantage of this chance to own this extraordinary painting. Contact us now at 780.488.4892 or email art@westendgalleryltd.com to learn more or to schedule a private viewing of Autumn Tapestry, Madawaska River.

Behind the Blooms: The Making of Breath of Life

05 March, 2024 3 min read

Breath of Life began with a drawing, a simple yet powerful blueprint for what would become a life-sized celebration of nature. In the concept sketches, we see the genesis of her vision—clusters of peonies rendered in loose, confident strokes. These initial marks are the seeds from which the full bloom of the diptych would grow.
