Landscape in Hochelaga

The painter Marc-Aurèle Fortin begins the 1930s with a new breath. Recognized by the critics for the magnificence of the trees in his works of the early 1920s, Fortin showed his interest in urban activity by walking the streets of Montréal. Quickly, the painter focused on Hochelaga, a part of the city in full change or industrialization which encroaches on the last fields still present in the city. Settling on top of a promontory, the artist made several watercolours of this unusual landscape. Although he preferred watercolour for this theme, Fortin created some brightly coloured oils.

The National Gallery of Canada selects one of its Hochelaga landscapes in 1930 and purchases it the following year. Hochelaga's views allow Marc-Aurèle Fortin to gain recognition in the rest of Canada and abroad.
