With an abundant sampling of work by the greatest practitioners of modern art in Québec, the Pierre Lassonde collection traces the lines of interest of a singular passion.

From the Impressionists to the Plasticiens by way of the members of the Beaver Hall group and the Automatists, this selection of a hundred key paintings in the history of Québec art is a unique opportunity to plunge into a world of astonishing aesthetic connections and unusual dialogues between the senses. You will see through completely new eyes, those of an astute and sensitive collector, the work of artists such as Marc-Aurèle Fortin, Clarence Gagnon, Marc-Aurèle de Foy Suzor-Coté, Helen McNicoll, Paul-Émile Borduas, Marcelle Ferron, Jean Paul Lemieux and Jean-Paul Riopelle.
