Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - 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.
