Maurice Raymond was a French Canadian painter. Born at St-Henri, on the isle of Montréal, he attended the Montreal School of Fine Arts between 1930 and 1936. He also spent a year in the United States, before returning to become a teacher at the same school he attended. He remained active as a teacher until 1977, and has set up a School of Fine Arts at the University of Quebec in Montréal.
Besides working as a fine artist and teacher, Maurice Raymond made several illustrations for the newspaper La Province, and illustrated a comic adaptation of 'La Campagne Canadienne', based on the novel by Adélard Dugré. The strip was a commission of the Association Catholique des Voyageurs de Commerce, who printed several comics that propagated nationalist French-Canadian ideals. 'La Campagne Canadienne' appeared in the Ottawa paper Le Droit, and later in Ave Maria magazine in 1943. He also made several murals.
