Lois Darroch, Bright Land: A Warm Look at Arthur Lismer, 1981, page 102, the 1948 canvas Pine Rhythm reproduced page 106

In 1923, Arthur Lismer headed to MacGregor Bay, the first of many trips, and in this striking landscape of windswept pines, rock formations and brilliant light, he made a leap forward in his work. Lois Darroch wrote, quoting Lismer, “It was here that he found himself as a painter.” His inclusion of Georgian Bay landscapes in the 1925 Group of Seven show resonated, and Lismer went on to produce some of his most defining works here, such as the 1938 canvas Bright Land, in the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. The evolution of his Georgian Bay work was not so much in technique, which was already well developed, but more in his perception of the life force of the land. Sheer vitality radiates from every element of this work, from the rocks, undergrowth and distinctive pines (a Group of Seven symbol of heroic survival) to the brilliant, cloud-scudded sky. Visceral, textured brush-strokes and incised lines convey great vigour in this superb Georgian Bay scene, which Lismer also painted as a large canvas.
