Interpretation of the work by the artist:

The 1st November 1959, Andy Bathgate of the NY Rangers executes a lightning throw on goaltender Jacques Plante and injures him in the face. The latter will return to the game with multiple stitches and a mask that will forever change the face of hockey. A great historical moment that I wanted to illustrate by showing the crowd behind to represent the atmosphere of the time and to add to the intensity of the scene. I am very attracted to crowds and gatherings of people where different personalities come together.

Le lancer - René Bégin

PriceFrom C$207.00
  • René Bégin's intention from the start was to bring a story to life through his works. Telling strong moments, common emotions as well as everyday scenes, his works shed as much light on moments of sports and urban history as on simple cultural and social life.


    After several years of experimentation and stylistic research, he has developed a new and unusual pictorial technique with field hockey tape on wood panel that is suitable for the sports scene but also for any other context.
