MUSEE MARC-AURELE FORTIN
Open in 1984, the Musée Marc-Aurèle Fortin is one of the few in Canada dedicated to one artist. Marc-Aurèle Fortin was born in 1988 in Sainte-Rose, near Montreal, Québec and he died in 1970. Passionate, his entire life was devoted to painting. He is most famous for his landscapes and known for his giant trees and immense skies. It is estimated that his production reaches nearly 7000 paintings. In 1967, he was blind and lived in the poorest conditions, but a friend and admirer takes him to Macamic Sanatorium in Abitibi, Québec, where he quietly dies in 1970.
The museum also presents temporary exhibitions by other painters.
