Here, Canadian artist William Brymner paints a tranquil riverscape along a sandy shore near Beauport, Quebec. Born in 1855, Brymner was highly influential, especially as an art teacher. His work was created in an Impressionistic manner, and he imparted this daring European technique to his students. He was the first Director of the Ottawa Art Association's Art School (eventually to become the Ottawa School of Art) from 1880-1883, before embarking on a thirty-five-year career at the Art Association of Montreal, where he taught everyone from A.Y. Jackson to Prudence Heward.
