Jacques Leveille
Canadian,

Jacques Leveille was born and lives in Montreal. He is the grand-son of the Flemish artist Gewelt, and son of a commercial artist named Jean-Paul Leveille. He combines a traditional technique with a contemporary approach. Renowned art critics have compared his style to that of Flemish and Dutch masters of the l7th Century. In 2003 Leveille was elected member of the Royal Canadian Academy.

For the last 20 years, Leveille's work has featured in numerous exhibitions, solo and group shows. His paintings can be seen in various private and public collections. A powerful polyptych "Les Trois Temps" is exhibited permanently in the impressive hall of the McGill Tower in Montreal.When scrutinizing this impressive polyptych (13' x 13.5"). one can fully understand Xuriguera's words: "...we are not in front of stricto-sensu documents: every detail rendered meticulously, yet not asepticized, we are contemplating fascinating images, concepts that lure us deep into Leveille's dreams."
