Canadian artist, R.C.A. Member of Beaver Hall Group
The painter Adrien Hébert was born in Paris on April 12, 1890. During his youth, he traveled several times in Quebec. After studying at the School of Fine Arts in Paris, he returned to Montreal, both for work but also to expose for a first time at the St-Sulpice library. In addition to teaching drawing, he collaborates with various magazines as an illustrator.
The best years of Adrien Hébert are between 1924 to 1950, at a time when the city of Montreal is transforming and energized, where its architecture is changing and where the Port of Montreal abounded of activities. Hébert painted the crowd swarming to the exit of stores, people embarking on the tram, facade buildings, vehicles operating, etc.
Several times Adrien Hébert moves in Saguenay where he is hosted by a family member. Throughout his life, he regularly stayed in France. In 1954, he traveled a short time in Africa.
He died June 20th, 1967, at the age of 77.
