Cornelius Krieghoff captured Canada in paintings for thirty years. Of particular interest to him were the American Indians and the habitants, French Canadian country people. His body of work is trailblazing. It is also the most sought-after, always breaking sales records for Canadian paintings.
But can we rely on the image he rendered of the men and women who built this country?
The ethnological value of his work constitutes the fundamental framework of this film which to date presents the most complete synthesis of the research on the life and work of this painter who is impossible to avoid in the art history of Quebec and of Canada.
