With warm colors, visible brushstrokes, and simplified form, luminosity becomes the central focus of this oil painting by L.A.C Panton that depicts a sunset over Lake Rousseau in Ontario. While Panton’s subjects included figure studies and residential scenes, landscape painting was where he shone. Born in England, Panton moved to Canada in 1911 and began his career as an artist in Toronto. He was the principal of the Ontario College of Arts (now OCAD) from 1951 until his death in 1954.
