Claude Langevin is a Quebec artist born in Montreal in 1942.
Langevin is a self-taught artist who paints landscapes in the Canadian tradition. Like the well-known Group of Seven artists, he begins with the unique reality of Canadian landscape and presents his own highly-personal interpretation using bold colours, imaginative composition and interesting explorations of perspective. Early in his career, Langevin worked with acrylic and spatula but, after “rediscovering” the work of Tom Thomson and Clarence Gagnon, he began to use oil and brush.
For over four decades Langevin has continued to use oil paint to create city and country scenes throughout the Province of Quebec and the Maritimes. Langevin now lives in the Laurentians and holds regular exhibitions in all the major urban centers of Canada. He is represented in many public and private collections.
