Notes

De Tonnancour has commented on his work:

I rediscovered, on the way back going through the spruce forests, in the muskeg country and elsewhere, this linear graphic quality in the forests and my painting developed as a graphic embroidery running through space... My Laurentian landscape series was about silence and a feeling of timelessness expressed through a slow progression into the depth of the scene.
