Born in Montreal in 1882, Alexander Young Jackson left school at the age of twelve and began work at a Montreal printing firm. In 1906, he undertook art studies at the Art Institute in Chicago. The following year he enrolled at the Academie Julian in Paris and remained in France until 1912. During this period, his painting was strongly influenced by the Impressionists.
After his return to Canada, Jackson took up residence in Montreal and made many sketching trips to the surrounding countryside. Lawren Harris and J.E.H. MacDonald were impressed by Jackson's work and, in 1913, persuaded him to move to Toronto. Jackson's great sense of adventure carried him from the east coast across Canada to the Rocky Mountains of the west. Every spring, he made regular sketching trips to Quebec and travelled to the far regions of Canada during the summer, including the Canadian Arctic. In the fall, he returned to the Studio Building in Toronto where he lived until 1955, spending his winters painting. He continued this active lifestyle until he was in his eighties.
