The paintings of Québec artist Joseph Légaré (1795-1855) are featured in this film about his life and work. Légaré was an innovative painter and an important representative of 19th-century Canadian art. His work is rich in both content and emotion. He had a tremendous feeling for his era, which is vividly captured on canvas. Légaré was more than a painter; he was a patriot deeply committed to political causes and totally involved in Québec life. The film is an exciting portrayal of an important period in the history of Québec.
