Fresques des Pilliers

under the Dufferin-Montmorency highway

These frescoes are painted on pillars that support the Dufferin-Montmorency highway overlooking East Charest Boulevard in the city's Saint-Roch district. They were completed between 2000 and 2002 at the instigation of Hélène Fleury, one of the Quebec artists who collaborated on the Fresque des Québécois. The pillar frescoes are the only ones in the city to portray imaginary scenes, rather than pages from the history books. In one of the pieces, La Cathédrale, the faces of apillar have been adorned with the interior and exterior of a cathedral inspired by Sainte Chapelle in Paris. On the other hand, a pillar mural featuring a princess, knight and wizard, Contes Chevaleresques [Tales from the King's Court], transports us to an imaginary universe of fairy tales. Another piece, L'Horloge [The Clock], shows the inner workings of a timepiece. Finally, Hommage aux Cirques Québécois [Tributeto Quebec Circuses] takes us inside the world of the circus and its actors, jugglers, clowns and acrobats.
