This original print is from a vintage edition of La Presse, a French Canadian newspaper. ran for nearly a century under different owners between 1836 and 1938. As La Presse recently went digital, this piece is really quite the find! This particular image is from a drawing by Marc-Aurele Fortin (b. 1888) a Montreal-born artist and illustrator who gained experience in Chicago, New York, and Boston. The caption describes his style as influenced by Impressionists, modern painters that they were!
This frontpage illustration shows the Canadian countryside in all its colourful glory. Recently matted, this print would look wonderful in any living room, bedroom, or even children's room!
