Summer Landscape, Saint-Sulpice

1914
In the early 1900s, Canadian artists who had studied or lived abroad began to incorporate international modernist styles into their own work. Through the influence of various artistic movements such as Impressionism, Post-Impressionism and Fauvism, they adopted a plein-air painting style involving direct observation of nature and the application of freer brushstrokes and brighter palettes. As a result, their paintings present evolving personal styles and convey each artist’s unique perspective of their subject.
