Hudon is best known for his humorous, sometimes madcap, treatment of religious and other authority figures such as lawyers and doctors. Never biting or cruel, yet subtly subversive, his work wittily pokes fun at institutional power.
The word “corneilles” in the title translates to “crows” and refers to the black robes worn by the priests.
