The Beav heard about an exhibit of engraving and paintings by Maurice Le Bel at the Bibliothèque du Boisé in Ville St. Laurent. He’s more-or-less unknown but he had some connections with members of the Monté Saint Michel. This exhibit was small but interesting. I liked the engravings and a few of the early paintings. Le Bel struck me as a talented painter without any strong ideas of what to do with his talent, and so his paintings tended to look like other people’s work.
The gallery space in the library was really quite beautiful. I like that Montreal is putting money into renovating their libraries. The new spaces are packed with people.
