Charlevoix County, which included Clarence Gagnon’s beloved home base of Baie-Saint-Paul, was a part of Quebec that the artist had a keen appreciation for – from its small, charming towns to the wooded countryside. This brilliant Quebec painter was close to the people of this region, and he introduced the countryside to other well-known painters such as A.Y. Jackson, Albert Robinson and Edwin Holgate. What mattered to Gagnon was the natural ambience of this locale and the rooted life of its people, its slow pace, the feeling of time standing still. That can certainly be felt in this lush and beautiful woods scene, which entices us forward by the inclusion of the overgrown winding path in the centre. The intuitive, loaded brush-strokes on this pochade, executed on site, describe the scene and lay in a rich palette – natural greens are highlighted by dabs and dashes of purple, pink, orange and blue. Although we are entering a forest interior, the sky is open above, and sunlight splashes through the foliage, showing Gagnon’s command of brilliant contrasts of light and atmospheric effects.
