Marguerite Bourgeoys makes another journey to Quebec City


If you would like to look at Pierre Le Ber's portrait of Marguerite Bourgeoys during the next few months, you must go not to the Marguerite-Bourgeoys Museum in Montreal but to the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec in Quebec City. The portrait is exhibited there as part of a temporary exhibition entitled "Les Arts en Nouvelle-France." The exhibition opened to the press and to special visitors on August 1, anniversary of the arrival of the Ursulines and the Augustinians at Quebec in 1639, and will continue until April 28, 2013. Among the 160 works presented are paintings, sculpture, silver and gold work, furniture, textiles, earthenware, ivory, graphic arts, etc. which illustrate "the richness and vitality of artistic production in the colony in the era of the French Regime." Marguerite's painting was given pride of place on August 1 and in press accounts of the opening.
