Summer 2013 at Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke
From 25 May to 6 October 2013: Marc-Aurèle Fortin. Paysages modernes du Québec traditionnel. An exhibition developed and circulated by the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.
The exhibition Marc-Aurèle Fortin. Paysages modernes du Québec traditionnel consists of thirty rural and marine scenes produced in oils or gouache by Fortin between 1910 and the 1950s. The works are grouped both by subject and by pictorial technique, with the aim of demonstrating how the practice of painting can be associated with tradition by thematic choices, but also, paradoxically, by the expression of a certain modernity in these choices. Presented by Hydro-Québec.
