The New Publication on the Painter and Photographer René Després


MONTRÉAL, March 17, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - The new publication on the painter and photographer René Després unmasks a multitude of situations.

Among others, one of the works from the artist's private collection was especially created to mark the very controversial ascension in the United States of a new inhospitable president. This situation, and its impact on the world around us, has inspired the new multifaceted book that can be glimpsed at in the various video presentations.

The cover page is the painting Horses, and all the works relate to what is going on in real time on our planet. dOnaLdS, presented at the very end of the catalogue, is dangerously current. Go to "dOnaLdS" at to discover a trove of exclusive information (photos and parchment message), on the Web at
