This rare casein on paper is a fine example of Gagnon’s 1960s work, a period that began on his return to Montreal from New York after studying at the Parsons School of Design and the New York School of Interior Design. This exhilarating period is felt in the artist’s painterly energy. The artist displays a remarkable range and quality of brushstrokes while deftly handling pictorial space. Gagnon’s composition, accentuated by his iconic forest green, soft whites and greys, is carefully constructed yet never contrived. Entirely engaged in the act of painting, Gagnon produced few works per decade. As such, his œuvre is extremely coherent and powerful.
