Growing up, both his parents were very much involved in their community. His father was on the board of directors of the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and the Grands Ballets Canadiens. “It seemed normal to give a portion of your time for interesting community and cultural organizations,” Forget said. Combined with a strong belief that art has a major role in building a better society, his desire for community involvement lead him to participate and lead many philanthropic activities for major instructions, such as the Guido Molinari Foundation, the Amis du Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal and the Montreal Decorative Arts Museum to name only a few. In addition to his philanthropic work, Forget built an impressive collection of art over many decades. He was also the primary manager of Fasken Martineau’s collection of approximately 400 works. “When I got my first apartment, I put up real art. I don’t run to meet creators. I frequent their products. Many painters are not good communicators, but they express themselves through their paintings. Although I can recognize the qualities of medieval to contemporary art, I like to surround myself with works of today,’’ said Forget. Forget was dedicated to bridging the business and the arts communities in Montreal, and his dedicated involvement garnered him the recognition of his community and his peers. He received the Montreal Business / Arts Personality of the Year award in 2009 and was also recipient of the Order of Canada for his philanthropy in education, health and the arts. Other works consigned by the Estate of Maurice Forget are lot 319, 412 and 521.
