Landscape at sunset by Marc-Aurèle Fortin.
"When he returned to Montreal in April 1910 and until the end of 1919, Fortin was employed as a clerk, at the posts which considerably limits the amount of time he can devote to his art. That's probably why he especially realized at that time small paintings and studies ". (Under the direction of Michèle Grandbois, Marc-Aurèle Fortin. L'expérience de la couleur, Editions de l'Homme, 2011, p. 22)
"On occasion, he is given all kinds of material by his painter friends, a habit he will always keep, and some of the restrictions that he imposes on him force him to produce smaller works." (Under the direction of Michèle Grandbois, Marc-Aurèle Fortin. L'expérience de la couleur, Editions de l'Homme, 2011, p. 29)
