Marc-Aurele Fortin, Quebec landscape painter, wanting a typically Canadian landscape school that stands out from any European influence. The casein medium was adopted by the artist in the 1950s. Although this milk-based technique dates back to medieval times, it came to Canada from the United States in the early 1950s.
