McMichael Canadian Art Collection
Painted circa 1957, this oil on canvas is from the collection of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Casson "developed a painting style distinctly his own. His design background is evident in the clear lines and well-thought-out compositions of his mature work, such as The White Pine of 1957. His work reflects the ideals of the Group of Seven, yet it has provided insight into a part of Canada he knew and loved well" from McMichael Canadian Art Collection catalogue.
