Galerie de Bellefeuille opens retrospective exhibition of the work of Guido Molinari
Guido Molinari, Sans titre, 1957.

MONTREAL.- Galerie de Bellefeuille, in collaboration with the Guido Molinari Foundation, presents a retrospective of the artist - a selection which include his works from 1951 to 2002: the gestural coloured canvases and black and whites from the 1950s; his dynamic spaces at the beginning of the 60s and the famous impressive vertical bands which would forge his reputation; his triangles and checkerboards of the early 70s; and at the end of that decade, the Quantificateurs which would occupy him for the rest of his career culminating in his Continuums series and his ultimate homage to Mallarmé.

In addition to this outstanding selection of paintings, Molinari’s works on paper, watercolours, inks and silk screens round out this exceptional exhibition.

For the last time, the Molinari Foundation has once again opened its vaults with the view of raising funds to fulfill its mission, which is to offer an exhibition space, not only for Molinari’s art, but also for the works of other artists – emerging or not – who share a rapport with him.

Molinari is an acknowledged master of abstract painting in Canada and a figurehead of the Quebec ‘plasticiens’ movement.

In the 60s, he participated in exhibitions at the Guggenheim and MoMA, and in 1968 he represented Canada at the Venice Biennale where he was awarded an important prize from the David E. Bright Foundation. A retrospective of Guido Molinari’s work was presented at the National Gallery of Canada in 1976, and in 1995 at Montreal’s Musée d’art contemporain. In 1980, the artist was the youngest laureat to receive the Paul-Émile Borduas Prize, the highest distinction awarded by the Quebec government to an artist working in visual arts.

Guido Molinari’s work is in prestigious private and public collections around the world as well as in important museums in Canada and abroad.
