Long Description:
Cette murale représente la vie à New-Liverpool, devenue St-Romuald, puis fusionnée à Lévis. Né en 1888, Lauréat Vallière fait partie de cette lignée d'artistes et d'artisans du bois qui ont fait de Saint-Romuald le centre de l'art religieux dans l'histoire du Québec contemporain. Élève de Ferdinand Villeneuve, il a exercé, pendant plus de soixante ans, l'art de la statuaire auprès des maîtres qu'il a côtoyés aux ateliers de Saint-Romuald. Artiste complet, il a touché au dessin et à la peinture ainsi qu'à la sculpture sur bois et sur pierre. Il est décédé en 1973.
