In Pursuit of Art

I went to the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) on 'free admission Wednesdays' and had a blast looking at all the paintings.  I took the above pic of a painting by Clarence Gagnon and I've fallen madly in love with this piece of art. Oddly, I couldn't find any information about this painting at the gallery (nor the internet!) so I'm left wondering what it was titled and where on earth I can find a print of it.  If anyone knows - please tell me!  But not all was lost because I enjoyed other great works by Lawren Harris and Arthur Lismer of the Group of Seven, and French master of impressionist painting - Claude Monet.  I was shocked to learn that photography is now permitted in Canadian art galleries, but pleased nonetheless (I'm anti-flash for the record!).  This way, I get to enjoy Gagnon's painting which for now shall remain nameless!

My boyfriend took this photo and made me promise I'd give him credit.  He's very proud of himself!
