Paul-Émile Borduas, Synthesis of a landscape of Saint-Hilaire, 1932

The family’s activities followed the rhythm of the seasons. During vacations, there were rowboat outings that gave Borduas a chance to get closer to his children. Walks on the mountain were a pretext for calling on the mountain “sage,” Ozias Leduc. Discovering the story of the “Grotte des fées” (fairies’ cave) and other legends associated with Mount Saint-Hilaire added spice to the family walks.
