Dates of existence
Born in Montréal in 1913, Lorne Bouchard received his early artistic training at the Barnes School of Art under Wilfred M. Barnes, R.C.A , and then later at the École des Beaux-arts, he studied drawing under Maurice Felix. He exhibited with the Royal Canadian Academy from the age of 16 on. Clarence Gagnon encouraged him and the example of Gagnon and Maurice Cullen helped him in his development. He was elected an Associate of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1943 and full member in 1962.
Nationally known as an outstanding painter of landscape, mainly of his native province, he also traveled in Canada from coast to coast on his sketching trips. He went down the Mackenzie River to the Arctic in 1962, later visited Baffin Island, N.W.T. and also did some painting in Mexico and Italy. He was regular exhibitor with Royal Canadian Academy, had exhibitions at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Continental Galleries from 1940 and the Walter Klinkhoff Gallery since 1960. In 1959 he won First Prize at the Montréal Hadassah Exhibition. He is represented in the permanent collections of the National Gallery in Ottawa and Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, as well as in very many private Collections in Canada and abroad. He died in 1978.
