This stark and peaceful scene belongs to Great Bear Lake in the Northwest Territories. Like many other paintings in his oeuvre, this painting conveys Johnston’s interest in depicting Canada’s diverse landscape. A simple, uncluttered composition alludes to the vastness of the territories and of Canada’s great land mass.
