Louis-Pierre Bougie – Galerie d’art La Corniche
Louis-Pierre Bougie was born in Trois-Rivières (Québec) in 1946. A master engraver, painter and sculptor, he has had a career spanning more than 40 years. The artist began his studies by auditing classes at the legendary École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, and went on to train at a number of studios, notably in France, where he learned lithography at Atelier Champfleury and specialized in intaglio and etching at Lacourière et Frélaut. A founding member of the Montréal printmaking cooperative L’Atelier Circulaire, Louis-Pierre Bougie continues to contribute to the development of printmaking in Québec by welcoming emerging and internationally established artists to the studio. The recipient of many prestigious awards, Louis-Pierre Bougie has exhibited in some fifty solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally. His work is included in private and public collections in Canada and abroad.
