Anne Savage plays with the rhythm of the undulating lines and exploits the characteristic sinuosity of the Quebec landscape, especially the Lower Laurentians, which she preferred to the “overly vertical” landscape of the Rockies. In The Plough, the curved implement dominates the foreground, from which a humanized landscape unfolds, rather than the virgin wilderness typical of the Group of Seven. Nonetheless, Savage demonstrates a stylistic kinship with the Toronto group.
