"I had invited Goodridge Roberts to spend the summer months with us in Port-au-Persil. I have always admired this painter, and I must say today that I am indebted to him for not having fallen into a dangerous negativism. By his aesthetic example more than his encouragement, he helped me to regain self-confidence. - Jean-Paul Lemieux

Based on remarks by Jean-Paul Lemieux collected by Gilles Corbeil and taken up by Marie Carani in the book Jean-Paul Lemieux of Quebec publications. (page 53)

Port-au-Persil is located on the banks of the St-Lawrence River, north of the Charlevoix region, after the town of La Malbaie.
During Lemieux's years of learning, Edwin Holgate's teachings and his connections with the artist Goodridge Roberts led him to master the technique and landscape of the Group of Seven. In the first years of the 1950s, he thus arrived at contrasting landscape paintings of dark and light tones.
