Despite the geographical and cultural gaps that distance Lagacé (Notre-Dame-du-Portage) from MacWilliam (Vancouver), Johnson invokes their closeness through the similar use of iconography and abstraction in their paintings. It is within the context of the history of painting that the author considers each painter’s work, while demonstrating how they both question modernist and formalist precepts. Johnson also outlines the stylistic criteria that should be used to group the works into series. Includes list of works. Texts in French and English. Biographical notes. 25 bibl. ref.
