Séguin, Marc – Suite Ottawa

As Picasso has done before him with his art dealer Ambroise Vollard, (The Vollard Suite), Marc Séguin develops with his gallerist Jean-Claude Bergeron, a suite of etchings known as La Suite Ottawa.

The artist Marc Séguin being a native of Ottawa and the Galerie Jean-Claude Bergeron being located in Ottawa, explains the title La Suite Ottawa for this collection.

Edited at 25 copies (except for the No.3 which has 20), the suite includes to date sixteen different editions. All refer to well-known characters whose often tumultuous life marked our collective imagination.

Three new etchings will be added to the Suite Ottawa in the spring of 2019. The Suite will be complete in the Spring of 2020.
