Piedmont is a small municipality located in the Laurentian Mountains northwest of Montreal. Maurice Cullen had a passion for the Laurentians, visiting often, and by 1922 had built a small cabin at Lac Tremblant on the Cache River. William Watson, Cullen’s well-known Montreal dealer, created a demand amongst collectors for these Laurentian landscapes, and Cullen concentrated on these themes after 1923. Cullen often painted out-of-doors, and Watson wrote that “Cullen has never been a drawing-room painter of the snow, but tramping out in wintry weather, he met his landscapes zestfully face to face. For every finished picture there is the original out-door sketch, and even on occasion he would take an entire canvas with him to complete out-of-doors on the spot.” Cullen often focused on the dramatic effects of light in the sky reflected in a river, such as in this fine painting which captures an evanescent moment in nature.
