A. Y. Jackson was the only founding member of the Group of Seven born in Quebec. He distinguished himself from the rest of the group by producing many rural Quebec scenes in addition to his northern repertoire. Grey Day, Laurentians was painted from a study made around 1931 at Saint-Urbain, in Charlevoix county.
