Description: Between September 9 and October 30, 1964, Burton traveled to the Yukon with fellow painters Maurice Haycock and A.Y. Jackson. This canvas would have been worked up in his Ottawa studio from a sketch (yet unlocated) executed on this trip.
This is a fairly large canvas for Ralph Wallace Burton as many of his paintings are smaller made on smaller boards. The painting is in excellent condition and comes fully framed ready to hang.
