Jaques Art Center Minnesota Tourism Information

The Jaques Art Center is located in Aitkin, MN and is home to the art of wildlife painter Francis Lee Jaques. The Jaques Museum has two galleries with a collection of 60 works from Jaques. Although Jaques grew up in Kansas, he made Aitkin, MN his long time home. Early in his life, Jaques watched the migrating geese and ducks over his Kansas home and began painting realistic wildlife images like the ones he had seen in magazines. Although he was a talented artist, Jaques spent time as a taxidermist, lumberjack, electrician and railroad fireman. These professions allowed him to continue painting the various landscapes he encountered, and soon he found his art works landing in places such as the American and Minnesota Museums of Natural History and the wildlife books of Sigurd Olson.
