Biography from the Archives of askART

Monique Harvey (1950 – 2001)

A painter, draftsman* and printmaker, Monique Harvey was born in Montreal, Quebec and died there. The Marc-Aurèle Fortin Museum (Montreal) hosted a retrospective of her works in 1989 and the Musée Pierre-Boucher (Trois-Rivières, Quebec) has an example of her work in its permanent collection.

Her primary medium was oil on canvas. Her subjects included portraits, figures, still life, landscapes, genre* and interiors. Her styles could be described as Expressionism*, Fauvism*, Modernism*, Naive Art*, Primitivism* and Surrealism*. The askART auction images are good illustrations of her oeuvre.

She considered herself a self taught painter; however, she did earn a Certificate in Arts – in drawing and painting – at the University of Sherbrooke, Sherbrooke, Quebec (1980). She worked as a photographer before for taking up painting in the late 1970s.

Harvey’s works were included in the exhibitions “Les Femmeuses”, Pratt & Whitney Canada, Longueuil, Quebec (1988, 1989 and 1996); “Women Painters of Quebec”, Musée Marc-Aurèle Fortin, Montréal (1990); “Laurentides: Pictorial Panorama from 1899 to the Present”, Centre d'exposition du Vieux-Palais, Saint-Jérôme, Quebec (1991); and in “Entre Deux Chaises”, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (1998).

Her works have also been shown at prominent commercial galleries such as Galerie Lydia Monaro, Montreal; Galerie Michel-Ange, Montreal; Hollander York Gallery, Toronto; Galerie St-Laurent + Hill, Ottawa; Loch & Mayberry Fine Art, Winnipeg; and Masters Gallery, Calgary.
