A.Y. Jackson's painting of a young maple tree cluster is thought to have been painted on the Oxtongue River Rapids while on a trip with Tom Thomson. The view depictes the young maple as struggling to grow and mature beside the life giving river. The symbolism of this painting is a direct relationship to the struggle and development of the Group of Seven themselves, who had a hard time with art critics and reviewers when they first started showing their work. The subject matter, as well as the style of the brush strokes, serve as a reminder that this new group of painters is here to stay.
