The Foundation

The Guido Molinari Foundation is open Thursday through Sunday, from 1pm to 5 pm.

The existence of the Foundation originates with a generous legacy from the artist, intended to promote and perpetuate his creative work, notably by converting his last studio located in former bank premises in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighbourhood, into an exhibition, conference and documentation centre in which works of art are shown and created, and intended in particular to promote the work of young, emerging artists.

The Artist and his Work

Guido Molinari was born in 1933 in Montreal, where he studied from time to time between 1948 and 1951 at the École des beaux-arts and at the School of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. He had his first solo show in 1953, at the L’Échourie restaurant, and three years later, exhibited in the United States for the first time. This self-taught artist quickly became the acknowledged master of abstract painting in Canada.

While awaiting its publication, we present a selection of thirty images; a few copies of each are available through the Foundation.
