Group - Category Art - Watercolour
Lead ART - Marc-Aurèle FORTIN ARCA (1888-1970)
Marc-Aurèle Fortin A.R.C.A, watercolour, “Grand Arbre et Vieille Maison”, signed B/L, framed, Galerie Martin label verso. Dimensions, 22" x 28”. The painter, watercolorist, draughtsman, printmaker, Fortin was born in Ste-Rose, Quebec (Canada). He devoted his entire life to landscape painting that celebrated the beauty of nature. His work is easily recognizable by his favorite subjects, leafy trees, rustic Quebec homes, hay carts and the Port de Montreal. In the mid 1930’s, he develops the “Maniere Noire or Black Manor” where he covers the entire surface of his canvas with black enamel. Once dry, he uses colour directly from the tube, using a brush to move the application around, achieving a unique and highly recognizable effect of luminosity. Fortin's work is highly sought after by individuals, galleries, and institutions.
