Prints by Albert Dumouchel in the Collection of the MMFA

Consisting largely of works drawn from the Museum’s collection, Revelations presents close to forty prints by Montreal artist Albert Dumouchel, one of the most influential Quebec printmakers of his time. An eloquent encapsulation of the originality of the artist’s printmaking, the exhibition highlights his technical mastery of the craft as well as his continually shifting imagery.

An incredibly varied body of work

Revelations traces the trajectory of the artist’s practice, from his initial experiments with printmaking in the early 1940s right up to his death in 1971. The striking contrast between his early religious imagery and later erotic subjects – with a substantial body of abstract works in between – is a tangible reminder of the profound social changes that were taking place in Quebec during the artist’s relatively short career. Dumouchel was also a highly esteemed teacher who trained many of the first generation of modern printmakers in Quebec, all the while pushing the boundaries of techniques and materials.
