M magazine-Montreal Museum of Fine Arts

My painting, ‘La Petite du Musée’, was featured in the Museum’s M Magazine September 2012, p.15 / (M – La revue du musée des beaux-arts de Montréal).

In 2012, I was commissioned by The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal’s largest museum and amongst the most prominent in Canada, to do a painting for their 2012 – 2013 school bulletin.

I decided to re-interpret William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s painting Parure des Champs. Using elements such as the crafts young students created during workshops at the Museum, art supplies, a school bag and running shoes; I turned the little girl into ‘La Petite du Musée’.

I also included a Montreal sky line in the distance and, in keeping with my theme from my WANDERLUST exhibit, I painted a sparrow on some spray cans. It’s a typical bird you would see all over urban Montreal.
