Claude Langevin

Born in 1942 in Montreal, Claude Langevin first studied medicine at l'Universite de Montreal and then abandoned that subject to become a painter. Interested in art since childhood, he found a job in a commercial gallery working with his cousin.

After several years, the self-taught artist had refined his technique, understood his subject, analyzed light and, in short, regarded himself as a true professional artist.



When Claude Langevin explained to me the way to his home, Reggiani’s words came to mind: “you continue strait ahead/ up to a golden river/ Which is named la Loire/ sand-colored eyes/ you take it by the left side/ then a right, and then strait ahead/ and when you’re there/ When you’re there/ Just ask for the house/ everyone knows us/ You can’t go wrong.”

The river does not bear the same name, it is called Noire like the lake. I therefore met a man who wants, as a singer would, he wishes to express himself by his paintings and proclaim his affection for his land and his people.

We can feel the long since unfailing connection between Claude Langevin and Saint-Jean-de-Matha. Yet this artist has traveled a great deal throughout this planet, having lived elsewhere in a quest for places to paint, the roads always lead him back to his native land.

A true nature lover, he is inspired when he returns to his roots. Sketchpad in hand, he explores the regions’ every nook and cranny. Following in the footsteps of admired artists such as Tom Thompson or Clarence Gagnon, he loves to work outside, spontaneously reproducing scenes of nature and his native land.
