The purpose of this exhibition is to demonstrate the extent of the experiments of this artist, painter and printmaker. Born in Montreal in 1910, trained in Fine Arts at a time where techniques prevailed on expression, Paul-Vanier Beaulieu used his stays in France to go out of the established frames. Curious about the possibilities and passionate about the artistic profession, he explores deeply the techniques and themes he chose. About sixty oils, watercolours, etchings and drawings illustrate the range of his work covering a period of almost five decades. The still-lifes, landscapes, roosters and characters reveal themselves in diverse mediums and in ways more or less figurative depending on the periods. Abstraction, close to Cézanne’s cubism, is also present.
