Hurtubise, Jacques

Jacques Hurtubise was born in Montreal in 1939. He graduated from l’École des Beaux-Arts of Montreal, where he studied with Alfred Pellan. In 1965, (at the age of 26) he represented Canada at the 8e Biennale of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where he won the first prize in painting. Very early in his career, Hurtubise is remarked for his direct and hard-hitting style. Practicing both painting and printmaking, his works show his unique style.

During his 50-year career, several museums, including the Musée des Beaux-Arts of Montréal, were interested in his work and gave him solo exhibitions. In 2000, he received the Paul-Émile-Borduas Prize from the Government of Quebec. Jacques Hurtubise died in 2014.
