It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Professor Emeritus, François-Marc Gagnon. He leaves behind his wife, Pnina Gagnon, daughter, Iris Amizlev and his two sons, Lee-Yarden and Yakir Gagnon. He was one of Canada’s most respected and prolific art historians. He passed away Thursday night, March 28th, surrounded by his family. François-Marc shaped and defined Quebec and Canadian art history for generations to come. Indeed, his lifetime of achievements can only be matched by his almost comical modesty. He was generous with sharing his passions for learning. His passing will leave an ever-widening wake in our hearts, his students, and the Quebec and Canadian art history communities.


Expressions of sympathy can be made in the form of a donation to the François-Marc Gagnon Commemorative Fund. These donations will allow the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts to acquire a work of art from Québec.
