ALFRED JOSEPH CASSON, O.S.A., P.R.C.A.
THE LITTLE WATERFALL
oil on canvas, laid down on panel
20" x 24" — 50 x 60 cm.
Painted in 1940.
It is interesting to note that Casson was elected a full member of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1940, the year this work was painted and, a year later, elected President of the Ontario Society of Artists.
The theme of waterfalls re-occurs during the course of Casson’s work, especially in later paintings from the 1970’s such as Below Ragged Falls, Oxtongue River.
