The Distant City
The Distant City,
Lemieux, Jean Paul
oil on canvas
49.1 x 110.3 cm


Lemieux did not really like the city. He often portrayed it from afar, as if to emphasize how inhuman it seemed to him. In this painting, the city becomes minuscule and inanimate. It is meaningless in comparison to the relationship between man and nature.
