Artwork under the theme of hunting by the Canadian artist Jean-Paul Lemieux. Guy Robert mentions, in his book cited above, themes dear to Jean-Paul Lemieux, that he declines by a series of different works. The artist then tackles, in the 1970s, the themes of the rider, the nativity and the hunt.
The early 1970s mark, in the career of Jean-Paul Lemieux, the use of wash and mediums such as ink or gouache. According to Guy Robert, these techniques give the work of Lemieux "a breath of freshness and lightness"
