Renowned for his winter landscapes of Quebec, Clarence Gagnon (Canadian, 1881–1942) studied under William Brymner at the Art Association of Montreal and under Jean-Paul Laurens at the Académie Julian in Paris. After his return to Quebec, he became a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Gagnon later spent time in Paris, traveled throughout Europe, and illustrated a number of books, including Louis Hémon’s Maria Chapdelaine and L. F. Rouquette’s Le Grand Silence Blanc.
