A sense of poetry permeates this serene twilight landscape that fuses Robert Pilot’s favoured time of day with his much-loved subject of winter in Quebec. La Malbaie, situated on the north shore of the St. Lawrence, typifies the scenic character and familiarity of place that the artist found so aesthetically appealing. The river, flowing through snowy banks, leads the eye straight to the town. From the village church with its tall spire to the cluster of old stone houses, the setting is quintessentially Québécois. Pilot’s Impressionist approach is manifest in the way he captured the fleeting, ephemeral nature of a dusky late winter’s evening. Pilot used a muted tonal play of colour, with pale green in the water, dark rose in the trees on the embankment and delicate pastels in the clouds, to create his sensitive effects. The hazy treatment of the snow-laden shoreline and the bright flecks of paint used to convey the warmly lit interiors of the homes in the far distance combine to evoke an atmosphere that is distinctively Pilot.
