Artist Suzanne Laurendeau 1942 - 2016 a native of Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec
Ms. Laurendeau studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Quebec in the early 1960s. Training in model and stained glass at the École de Chartres influenced her painting, which stood out with well-defined contours. She also learned stained glass from the master glassmaker, Olivier Ferland.
In 1993, the Biennale de Paris recognized the quality of work by awarding it the Palme d'Argent.
Suzanne Laurendeau holds a grand prize from the Society for Studies and Conferences of Quebec, and her paintings appear in various institutional and public collections, such as the Ministry of Cultural Affairs and that of Social Affairs of Quebec.
In 1994, one of her works "The Little Fish" was chosen to illustrate the cover page of the Reader 's Digest Selection. The following year, it was around the company Québec-Téléphone to select one of her works, this time to illustrate the cover page of his telephone directories.
Her works are part of numerous private and public collections, including those of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Bombardier, the Ministries of Justice, Culture, Social Affairs and Hôtel de Ville de Sainte-Foy.
Painter of emotions, Ms. Laurendeau used mixed techniques where acrylic and oil come together. "When she approaches a painting, Ms. Laurendeau knows how her characters will look, the space they will occupy, their clothes, the colors that will emerge from her palette," we could read in July 2008 in an article that Le Placoteux dedicated to this artist.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
