Clarence Gagnon's Impressionist works are evidence of his ability to balance the elements of what he saw in the landscape. Here, harmonious brushwork runs throughout the scene, which is depicted in varied and jaunty autumnal colours. Gagnon and his wife Lucile visited Telemark County in southeastern Norway during their extensive European travels between 1926 and 1936. The Gagnons grew very fond of Scandinavia, and during this decade of travel they returned to the Nordic countries numerous times. Gagnon chose rural areas to paint, where he found the people to be similar to the inhabitants of his hometown of Baie-Saint-Paul, and the scenery to be easily accessible and pleasant. He was an avid hiker and an even more avid fisherman, thus shoreline views figure prominently in the works from this time. Gagnon's meticulous technical approach allowed him to include an incredible amount of detail in even a very small work, such as this intimate depiction of Lac Nissedal.
