Guy Robert, Lemieux, 1978, page 95
In the early 1950s Jean Paul Lemieux was painting Quebec scenes which, although simplified, had not yet arrived at the extremes of reduction of both landscape and palette that began later in the decade. In 1953 Lemieux was included in a group exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada, and also had his first one-man show at the Palais Montcalm in Quebec City. As Guy Robert indicates, "Landscapes dominated the forty-five or so canvases presented, most of which were painted in the area of Charlevoix and near the Saguenay." In Paysage, Lemieux's palette is rich with colour, with purple tones in the sky and streaks of orange and emerald green running through the warm golden field. Lemieux's brushwork is softly expressionist, and the atmosphere is that of a beautiful and peaceful sun-drenched afternoon.
