The painting of René Richard titled Winter Camp Site is part of the artist's flagship body of work. The nomadic way of life of the trapper in distant and hostile regions is familiar to René Richard. His experience as a coureur des bois makes him the only Canadian artist to have truly felt the harsh realities of this way of life.
Here, in the work Winter Camp Site, the dogs in a hurry for the departure ready to discover other territories. René Richard testifies to the daily reality of the trapper in a non-hospitable environment, but its composition also testifies all the affection and nostalgia for this life of freedom and discovery.
