Ludger Larose

A painter, anticlerical free thinker and drawing teacher, Ludger Larose was born in1868 in Montreal and died there in 1915.  First trained at the École des arts et métiers de Montréal, he pursued his education at the Académie Colarossi and at the École des beaux-arts de Paris while successively attending the workshops of Jean-Paul Laurens, Jules-Élie Delaunay and Gustave Moreau.  In 1894, he returned for good to Montreal where he undertook a successful career as a painter (religious art, portraits, urban scenes, still lifes, landscapes, graphic art, etc.), drawing teacher (academic institutions and private classes) and speaker on his method for teaching drawing.  Simultaneously, Larose exhibited seven times at the Art Association of Montreal and twice at the Royal Academy of Canada.  His artwork consisted of about 400 paintings, many of which are part of museum collections at the National Gallery of Canada, the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal and the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton.
