Canadian landscape painter depicting the solitary life of trappers in Canada's North. Installed in Charlevoix since 1938, Richard paints this work according to his memories and sketches made during his life as trappers.
The dark blue sky makes you feel the cold of the northern landscapes. Trees lacking foliage and orange and purplish colors lead us to think that the season is autumnal. The characters are in motion, finishing the assembly of their camp.
