Quebec City, 1906 - Montreal, 1988

A major change happened in Quebec for which Pellan’s return in 1940 form Paris was a turning point. Other artists, over the previous years, had tried to alert their very conservative community to the existence of modern avant-gardes; but Pellan, with his copious Parisian production  - almost 400 works – made the transition possible. Opposed by more than a few, his art broke through a barrier which was both artistic and social, and which opened an avenue to fauvism, cubism, a dreamlike surrealism, and primitivism.
