Gerard Lapointe (1932-2022)
Gerard Lapointe lived and practiced his art in Charlevoix, Quebec. Originally a draughtsman, he shifted his focus to painting after discovering its potential and freedom of expression.
Lapointe’s distinctive, Impressionistic painting style is charming and poetic, as he experiments with colour and form, reinventing the surrounding landscape. Autumnal trees and quaint houses are speckled among rolling hills and rounded mountains in his picturesque scenes of the Charlevoix region.
His paintings are held in private collections across Canada.
