Product Description

A unique opportunity for well-informed collectors to acquire artwork by Jean-Paul Lemieux.
Recognized for his paintings of the desolate, seemingly infinite spaces of the landscapes and cities of Quebec, many of his works are permeated with an intense feeling of mystery.
Jean-Paul Lemieux was one of the foremost twentieth century painters in Canada. He worked in several different styles, as represented by his five artistic periods. There was a consensus among critics regarding the importance and value of his work, and the honours began to pile up. In 1966 Lemieux was received as a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. In Canada’s centennial year, 1967, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts mounted a retrospective of his work, which toured to the Musée du Québec (now the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec) and the National Gallery of Canada. In that same year he received the Canada Council Medal, and in 1968 he became a Companion of the Order of Canada. In 1997, he received the Grand Officers of the National Order of Quebec.

Here is your chance to acquire the canvas Country Road, 1952, 15″ x 24″.
