George Lorne Holland Bouchard
(1913 - 1978) RCA

Born in Montreal, he studied at the Barnes School of Art. He was encouraged by Clarence Gagnon to paint the Quebec landscape. His talent was recognized by both Gagnon and Maurice Cullen, who were influencial in his early artistic development.
During his early career he earned his living as a commercial designer, while continuing to paint in his free time. In 1952 he turned to free-lance illustration work. Among his commissions were magazine covers as well as large paintings for the board rooms of corporations such as Seagrams and Nordair. He was much infuenced by the landscape of Northern Quebec, which he first visited in 1928. Generally drawn to wild and isolated regions around the country, such places served as inspiration for his landscape painting. He was a location painter, working quickly to capture the atmospheric effects of light. His style can be described as a combination of realism and impressionism. He was a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Artists. He died in Montreal at the age of 65.
