Ludger Larose
(1868 - 1915)

Born in Montreal, he studied drawing at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Paris, from 1887 to 1894, under Jean Paul Laurens and Gustave Moreau and won a prize in the evening school. He returned to Montreal and taught drawing at the Ecole du Plateau (1894-1910) and Westmount public schools (1912-1915). He did landscapes of the Laurentian area as well as other subjects. He decorated the Sacred Heart Chapel of Notre Dame Church, Montreal. Some of his work has passed through the hands of the Dominion Gallery, Montreal. Larose died in Montreal at the young age of 47.
