Clarence Gagnon: The Maria Chapdelaine Illustrations

$24.95

Published with: the McMichael Canadian Art Collection

Remarkable paintings grace the pages of Maria Chapdelaine, a novel written by a Frenchman yet embraced by generations of Canadian readers. Renowned Canadian artist Clarence Gagnon used a meticulous process to create 54 small paintings for Louis Hémon’s early 20th-century story set in the Quebec countryside. Gagnon’s vivid illustrations depict the strength of body and soul necessary to survive such a harsh environment. All of the Gagnon Maria Chapdelaine illustrations are reproduced in this book, with excerpts from the novel. The complete set of paintings resides in the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, where it is considered a rare treasure. Art historian and curator Ian M. Thom in his essay provides insight into Gagnon’s life and an appreciation of his art.
