Jean Paul Lemieux Life & Work by Michèle Grandbois

The Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Quebec City, houses the most comprehensive collection of works by Jean Paul Lemieux. Other important galleries, museums, and private collections in Canada also hold his work. Documentary sources and photographic records of the artist’s work are available for consultation at the National Gallery of Canada and at Library and Archives Canada, Ottawa. Lemieux’s works are not on public view at all times in these institutions, with the exception of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, where a permanent exhibition space was dedicated to him in 2014; there visitors can view works from each of the most important stages of his artistic career.
