Clarence Gagnon returned to his Paris studio from Quebec in January of 1925, and he would remain in France until 1936. However, his ties with home were still so strong that before leaving, he had been charged by the National Gallery of Canada to try to secure another showing, in Paris, for the 1925 Wembley exhibition of Canadian artists in London. The Paris exhibition took place in 1927, with Gagnon as curator, in collaboration with National Gallery director Eric Brown.
In 1926 Gagnon traveled to Switzerland. At that time he likely encountered Vallorcine, in the Valley of L’Eau Noire between the Col des Montets and the Swiss border. In this charming pochade study, Gagnon’s subject comes across as larger in scale than its actual size, through the depiction of the towering Alps receding into the distance and the moody, drifting cloud formations. The image of the small village with its rustic houses and church tucked into a valley and backed by mountains is a classic one for Gagnon in both his Canadian and European subject matter.
