Normand Hudon: Caricaturist, painter, fantasist was born in Montreal 5 June 1929 and deceased in Montreal 8 Jan 1997. In the 1950’s, Hudon was showing his paintings and drawings in galleries and was becoming one of the most biting caricaturists. On 9 July 1965 he designed a cover for Time magazine and that year also prepared a huge composition for a pavilion at Expo 67. After a more difficult period, he began working seriously again in 1972 and in a few years had completed a body of work which treated, with tender irony, certain aspects of the Québec heritage: nuns on bicycles or priests on skates, mischievous children or picturesque villages, tip-tilted houses or shops, and court scenes that could rival those of Daumier.
