Canadian artist, R.C.A. Quebec Modern Group
The Canadian artist Jean-Paul Lemieux was born in Quebec City on November 18, 1904. He began his artistic training at the Collège Layola in Montreal in 1929. Later, he stayed in Europe and continued his painting training at the Grande Chaumière in Paris. In 1935, he returned to Canada, specifically in Montreal to improve his techniques at the École des Beaux-Arts in Montreal. Jean Paul Lemieux is particularly renowned for his paintings, which have vast and silent landscapes. Many of his works are impregnated with an intense sense of mystery and ambiguity. Lemieux adopts a more formal and conceptual approach to his landscapes, often populated by rigid and immobile figures. Through the simplified symbolic figurative, he exploits the highly symbolic possibilities of the medium and demonstrates the importance of the latter on the plastic and significant plane.
The works are presented in the most prestigious national collections, such as the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Also, some of his works that preached a lyrical and humorous character were used to illustrate the novels of Gabrielle Roy.
