Helen McNicoll had a short but prolific career. At the time of her death in 1915, she had exhibited over seventy works in Canada and England; her memorial exhibition featured nearly 150 paintings and sketches. Though primarily known today for her representations of modern women and carefree children, she also painted landscapes and rural genre scenes. Her bright Impressionist images appeal strongly to the senses, even as they convey a sense of quiet and detachment.
