Born in Montreal in 1913, Lorne Holland Bouchard began drawing at the age of seven. From 1928 to 1930 he trained at the Barnes School under Wilfred M. Barnes, R.C.A, and at L'École des Beaux-Arts in Montreal. He first exhibited at the age of eighteen at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Montreal and at an exhibition given by the Royal Academy of Arts.
Bouchard’s early work was influenced by Maurice Cullen and Clarence Gagnon. He travelled extensively in Massachusetts, the Arctic, Mexico, Europe and Canada. He is best known for his work depicting the landscapes, street scenes and waterfront scenes of Ontario and Quebec.
Bouchard applied his paint with a palette knife and brush, contributing to a style that combined the elements of impressionism and realism. In 1955 he began working as a commercial artist in Montreal and continued in this field throughout his life.
