Alfred Pellan’s Home Discovered

Alfred-PellanWhen buying the 581, 3e Avenue in Limoilou, in 1984, Carol Baronet and André-Paul Gagné gained many archives revealing that the house was once owened by the famous painter, Alfred Pellan.

They recently learned that this information was never publicized. A letter signed by Alfred Pellan in their hands, they went to the Musée National des beaux-arts du Québec on Monday to share this information which they have been keeping for the past 30 years.

When reading an article about the workshop visits organized by the museum this summer, they were surprised to learn that historians thought Pellan’s childhood home had been destroyed.

In 1984, shortly after Mr. Gagné and Baronet bought the place, an arts teacher working with Mr. Gagné mentioned that his new home had been the home a famous painter.

The sale gives him the right to Pellan’s will, other properties, oil and heating bills and all types of other documents about the house’s history.
