This is Thomson's studio canvas version of the Northern River sketch, and is much more detailed and refined than his original wood panel version. It is a masterpiece of composition and colour use. This was the first painting Thomson sold to The National Gallery of Canada. He received $500; a huge sum of money at the time. He referred to it as "my swamp painting". Up close, the painting appears to be a very impressionistic/expressionistic and colourful, but when you look at it from far away (the other side of the parking lot) it becomes something very different. It is mind boggling the skill that Thomson really had.
