Title
Les paysages québécois de William Brymner : expérience de la nature comme lieu identitaire canadien au tournant du XXe siècle
Abstract
An historical-cultural study of forty-seven landscape paintings by artist and teacher William Brymner (1855-1925), painted between 1891 and 1914, to understand the development of English Canadian nationalism and identity prior to the First World War. The author contends that this new Canadian identity encompassed the idea of two founding nations. The Scottish-born Brymner immigrated with his parents to Melbourne, Quebec, in 1857. The family moved to Montreal in 1864. As a teacher, Brymner encouraged his students to explore new modernistic approaches to painting.
