Do you find comfort in the outdoors? French Canadian painter, sculptor, and decorator Marc-Aurèle de Foy Suzor-Coté certainly used nature as his source of inspiration. Born in Arthabaska (Que.) in 1869, Suzor-Coté studied in Europe and later set up a studio in Montreal, where he depicted a wide range of topics in his impressionistic style. Landscapes and genre scenes of Quebec life, like this canvas depicting loggers in a Quebec forest, remain among his best-known works.
