IN THE FOOTSTEPS
OF RENÉ RICHARD

Esther Pelletier

Documentary,
color/ B&W,2003
Video, 52 min.

video
available on VHS and DVD


An engaging, passionate, extraordinary human being, the painter René Richard (1895-1982) lived the first half of his life in the woods under very challenging circumstances. His goal was to obtain greater self-knowledge. He was the son of Swiss immigrants who settled in Alberta. Richard chose to live among the Cri and Inuit, and it was in their vast open spaces that nurtured his need to be an artist. In 1927, he journeyed to Paris to study painting. There he encountered the Canadian painter Clarence Gagnon, who became his mentor. Upon his return to Canada in 1930, he resumed the life of a trapper in Manitoba. In 1938 he moved to Baie St-Paul (Quebec), where, until his death, he painted his colourful and luminous landscapes in a style characteristic of 1950s Quebec expressionism.

* sub-titled from original french version  "Sur les pas de René Richard"
