Hibbard discovered the beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in the mid-1920s, first on his own and later on his honeymoon with Winifred Jackman in 1925, and the studies he completed during these visits would inform compositions throughout his lifetime. The lakes, mountains and woodlands provided endless inspiration, and he even traveled by horseback in order to reach some of the more spectacular views. Sunlit Peak, Lake Louise, Canadian Rockies reveals his gift for rendering light and shadow in the scene before him, as well as the subtle mix of reflections in the crystal-clear water. It also shows his strength for composition in capturing the monumental peaks of Banff National Park in a limited space.
