Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes
An influential artist in the Montreal art scene, Randolph Hewton belonged to the Arts Club of Montreal, was one of the founders of the Beaver Hall Group, and from 1921 to 1924 was principal of the Art Association of Montreal. A contemporary of the Group of Seven, he shared their enthusiasm for painting Canadian scenery with freshness and vigour, and he often painted with A.Y. Jackson in Quebec villages. At a time when controversy raged between academicians and painters who broke with tradition such as the Group, Hewton was appointed by the National Gallery of Canada to the jury that chose works for 1924's British Empire Exhibition at Wembley. The modern Canadian artists chosen for this international exhibition received enthusiastic reviews, making it a milestone in Canadian art history. Hewton's fresh approach to landscape is evident in this verdant summer scene glowing with light and sumptuous colour. Tucked against the bank of the river and rising over the crest of the hill, the village dreams in the afternoon sun, its peaceful heart caught in a timeless moment.
