About artist/note:

Fortin was a premier colourist and the powerful impact made by such a diminutive work is largely attributable to his unparalleled chromatic sense and intuition.

Here Fortin executes an effective and exciting paradox in paint. He has made a cold winter’s day in Ste-Rose hot by using oranges and reds, even lime green, in the man-made structures in high contrast to the cool colours of the snow and shadows. The effect is quite fabulous.
