Gagnon, René

Medium : oil

Born in Chicoutimi (Québec) in 1928.

Since 1967, the art of this self-taught artist , René Gagnon, has travelled around the world. As passionate and dedicated as he was then, his art remains today spontaneous and rich with colours. Using a palette knife, he layers colours with great artistry capturing the luminous quality particular to northern landscape.
