Mrs. Louis J. Forget's Dining Room

Mrs. Louis J. Forget's Dining Room

A broker and financier, Louis-Joseph Forget was one of the rare French Canadians whose success in business permitted him to enter the Montreal upper classes. Forget had ties with the economic, political and religious elite of the city and country, who were received in his sumptuous residence on Sherbrooke Street West. Members of his extended family would also take their places around the dining room table, including his grand-niece Thérèse Forget, the future Thérèse Casgrain.
