Book Description:
Celebrated for his paintings of rural life in his native province of Qu bec, Clarence Gagnon was invited in 1928 to create illustrations for the first colour edition of Louis H mon's novel Maria Chapdelaine. Using chalk, gouache, pastel and graphite on paper, the artist prepared 54 mixed media drawings which were a skillful evocation of the dialogue with nature the forest, the land and the cycle of life and death that so engaged the characters of this best selling story. In this collection, we present a selection of the wonderful images that eloquently capture a time lost forever to the modern age. Clarence Gagnon, peintre reconnu pour ses oeuvres d peignant la vie paysanne de son Qu bec natal, fut invit en 1928 cr er des illustrations couleur pour le grand roman de Louis H mon, Maria Chapdelaine. Il a r ussi dans ses 54 dessins de techniques mixtes (craie, gouache, pastel et graphite sur papier) saisir l'omnipr sence du dialogue avec le nature la for t, la terre, les cycles de la vie et de la mort th me puissant et profond de ce populaire roman. Dans cette collection, nous vous pr sentons une s lection de ces images loquentes qui ont si bien su rendre cette poque aujourd'hui r volue.
