About artist/note:

Frederick Simpson Coburn (1871-1960) was inspired to create compositions similar to The Logging Trail during moments of quiet contemplation of the view outside his Melbourne, Quebec studio window.

One winter’s day, he noticed a team of horses hauling fire wood, a familiar sight in this part of Quebec. The scene triggered an interest verging on an obsession and Coburn was to devote much of his life to painting these classic winter moments.
