Robert Pilot is well known for his ability to portray the half-light atmosphere of sunrise and sunset. Here, we see that his ability to capture the atmospheric effects of weather was just as well honed. One of the vistas that he often painted, that of Baie-Saint-Paul, Quebec, is depicted in the misty mauve and white of a fine rain falling on snow. Everything is washed into harmonious shades, with the subtle accents of the red, pink and pale turquoise houses running through the centre of the work in a chain of colour. The moisture in the air is palpable, and we see the whole scene through a screen of humid, dampened hues. Pilot's brushwork only adds to the feeling of mistiness - there is a uniformity to the sky and distance in the work, while the near ground has more texture and areas of impasto that give both depth and solidity to the snowbanks. From a true master of light and weather, Rainy Day, Baie St. Paul is a quintessential work by one of Canada's finest Impressionists.
