Exceptional and rare painting by René Richard. Created very early in his career, we distinguish a significant influence of Clarence Gagnon, his mentor. The subject, a winter landscape composition in the Canadian countryside, might recalls some of Gagnon's artworks, but Richard's technique is characterized by raw and more spontaneous brushstrokes. Savvy collectors will be delighted to discern in this painting an exploratory period in the development of the personnal style of the artist.
