Michèle Grandbois, editor, Marc-Aurèle Fortin: The Experience of Colour, Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, 2011, essay by Richard Foisy, page 56

The lush green trees, particularly the elms, of the small towns and rural countryside of Quebec were an important motif for Marc-Aurèle Fortin. Fortin was born in Sainte-Rose, where he lived, as he described, as “a child of nature.” Richard Foisy wrote that there was a “touch of the wondrous that coloured his view of the world and that the artist expressed best in his paintings of large trees and any landscape he found bewitching...This almost supernatural and magical atmosphere caused an invisible note to vibrate in the real world, a note that Fortin revealed both in the dazzling stillness of mid-day...in the glory of morning and in the chiaroscuros of evening where he captured the passing of time.” This vibrant work is set at dusk, with a bright yellow sky casting its golden light over the verdant landscape.
Please note: this lot is accompanied by a letter of authentication signed by René Buisson, executor of the artist's estate. This letter confirms the circa 1920 date.
This work will be included in the forthcoming catalogue raisonné on the artist's work, #H-0807.

Estimation : $50,000 - $70,000
