A 'Conte Historique de la Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste

J.-B. Lagacé was an illustrator for the collection 'Contes Historiques de la Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste'. These were nationalist stories about the French-Canadian "race" and the Catholic faith, that were published in 1919. They were authored by influential members of the Catholic elite such as Lionel Groulx. Other artists for the collection were Onésime-Aimé Léger, Albert-Samuel Brodeur, Rita Mount, Napoléon Savard, Claire Fauteux, Georges Latour and James McIsaac. A second series appeared the same year, and the third in 1920. J.-B. Lagacé was a teacher in Fine Arts at the University of Laval.
