Jean-Paul Pépin

Canadian painter Jean-Paul Pépin was born in a artistic family; his mother was a musician and his father was a bookseller. He studied with the greatest names of his era: Laliberté, Delfosse, L.P. Hébert, Ernest Aubin, Franchère and Clarence Alphonse Gagnon.

He joined the Montée St Michel painters in the thirties, and painted Quebec landscapes and sceneries.  After 20 years of experimentations, Pépin developed his own style called ''Catalogue'' recognized easily by diagonal  brush strokes.

His favourite subject were the Old Montreal scenes.
