Pierre-Paul Bertin

1926-2006

Représentant de la France au Symposium international de sculpture de Québec tenu en 1966, Pierre-Paul Bertin s'installe au Québec en 1967. Il vit et travaille dans l'arrondissement de Beauport de 1982 à 2006. L’œuvre prolifique de cet artiste polyvalent constitue l'un des fleurons de la vie culturelle beauportoise.


Hommage à Zadkine

L'oeuvre originale en bois et cuivre, réalisée par Pierre-Paul Bertin vers 1985, est coulée en bronze en 2009.

À travers cet assemblage de multiples éléments géométriques, selon une facture libre bien représentative de son art, Bertin rend hommage à son maître Ossip Zadkine, sculpteur français d'origine russe et figure marquante de l'histoire de la sculpture au 20e siècle.

Œuvre inaugurée le 27 octobre 2009 par la Commission de la capitale nationale du Québec et la Ville de Québec à l'occasion du 375e anniversaire de Beauport.

Cette œuvre est située au coin des rues Pierre-Paul Bertin et St-David à Beauport.
