Victor Bourgeau. A bishop and his architect
Victor Bourgeau (1809-1888) was the principal architect of the Montreal diocese under the episcopate of Bishop Bourget. He built more than 200 buildings in Quebec, including the Hôtel-Dieu de Montréal in 1861. The exhibition focuses on the profession of architecture in the 19th century and provides an understanding of the very specific way of building that Victor Bourgeau developed during his career.
The first retrospective on Victor Bourgeau, this exhibition presents for the first time in one place a multiplicity of original plans signed by the architect, such as the Grey Nuns’ convent (Montreal), the church of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul (Laval) or the convent of the Sisters of Providence.
