Louis JAQUE (1919 – 2010) – Louis-Jacques Beaulieu
Louis Jaque was born Louis Jacques Beaulieu on May 1, 1919, in Montreal and died on January 7, 2010, in Montreal. He was a Canadian painter who belonged to the Quebec modernist movement of the post war period.
Jaque received his diploma from the École du Meuble where he studied under Jean-Paul Lemieux and Paul-Emile Borduas in 1938.
He stared embracing abstraction in the 1950s influenced by the cubistic and constructivist movements. But his fascination for light and form made his work soft and away from Hard Edge geometric abstraction.
The curls and shining undulations propel the viewer into space. Their conical and tubist gradations recall Malevitch and Fernand Léger, whom Louis Jaque met on two occasions in Montreal during the war. The paintings of Louis Jaque achieve a synthesis between the modernist experiments of the “Optical Art” movement and of the concept of “Space Painting’’.
