Paul Vanier Beaulieu (1910-1996) was a Canadian artist noted for his influence on Quebec art and it's post-war revival. 

Beaulieu left Montreal for Paris in 1938 to pursue his lifelong dream of painting. While in Paris, Beaulieu quickly became surrounded and influenced by many leading artists, including Picasso. Pablo Picasso's iconic cubist style, as well as his signature symbols and figures, can be found in many of Beaulieu's works. 

Shortly after moving to Paris, Beaulieu and his brother were arrested and imprisoned in an internment camp by invading German forces, where they would remain until liberation in 1944. During his time in internment camp, Beaulieu continued to paint and create art. 

Upon his release, Beaulieu moved back to Montreal for a short while before moving back to Paris where he would begin the first of many important chapters in his painting oeuvre. Focusing on the theme of life, Beaulieu explored still-life and landscapes integrating the background into the overall composition of the image. 

It was the daring modernist imagery and forms of Beaulieu's works that influenced succeeding generations of painters in Quebec, using similar pre-war influences as Beaulieu. Ultimately, Beaulieu explored many styles and subjects ranging from portraiture to avant-garde abstraction. However it is his landscapes that he remains best known for. 

This watercolour painting incorporates the vivid colors and modernist style Beaulieu loved to explore. Here in this vibrant composition, a fiery forest is juxtaposed with a deep blue sky. 

Beaulieu's works can be found in many prominent museums in Canada and beyond including, the Montreal Museum of Fine Art, the National Gallery of Canada, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Tel Aviv Museum of Art.
