Employing a biographical narrative, the author of this volume presents Pierre Gauvreau’s early work and explores the personal and anecdotal nature of his youthful drawings, which foreshadow his later non-figuration. The works produced here are part of the Galerie de l’UQAM’s collection. This publication was produced to coincide with the exhibition Pierre Gauvreau : dessins de jeunesse 1938-1946, which was shown at the Galerie de l’UQAM from January 16 to March 15, 2003, at the Centre d’exposition de Baie-St-Paul from October 2, 2004, to January 9, 2005.
