                                                Sold For $2 Million

Lemieux wanted to be known as a painter of the “north,” not as a painter of a certain locale, and was exhilarated by the recognition he won in Moscow and Prague when his paintings were exhibited there in 1974. It proved to Lemieux that his art was universal, Gagnon said.
