Jorie Marjorie Smith

She has played a groundbreaking role in the development of Canadian painting. She was a key figure in the 1930s in initiating Canada's modernist art movement, notably as a co-founder and the only woman member of the Eastern Group of Painters. An artist of international repute, she is particularly known for her landscapes and children's portraits. Much of her art expresses her irresistible enthusiasm for life and reflects the richness and diversity of Quebec's culture, in particular, the rustic charm of the Baie Saint-Paul area. She has exhibited her works here and abroad, and they are part of many public and private collections. Her exceptional career serves as a source of inspiration for younger generations.
