Say it isn't so - Bruno Cote, dead?
I was talking to an artist friend this evening on the phone. He told me that he had recently learned of the passing of Bruno Cote. Say it isn't so? Bruno Cote dead?
Bruno is one of Canada's foremost oil painters. He established himself as a foremost landscape artist, noted for painting his beloved Charlevoix region in Quebec.
Cote has been called a latter day Group of Seven artist, because of his style of landscape impressionism.
During our conversation, Don told me that Bruno's art was in such demand in Calgary that his paintings "flew off the shelf".

Regretably, I haven't had any luck in substantiating this in my internet searches.
