About artist/note:

The village of Tadoussac where the Saguenay River meets the mighty St. Lawrence has been a favourite subject for painters for generations. Here, Nora Collyer interprets the village in rich, bold colours and the high vantage point she has selected affords an interesting tension between the perspective demanded by the view and an au fait flattening of the overall design. The result is charming.

Provenance:

Gift of the artist
By descent through the artist’s family
