JEAN-PAUL RIOPELLE (Canadian / 1923-2002)

Jean-Paul Riopelle, the founding father of modern art in Canada, was born in Montreal, where he studied at the Beaux-Arts. Riopelle spent much of his life in Paris, moving there in 1949. Riopelle was at the cutting edge of Abstract Expressionism; for instance in the group show Véhémences confrontées at the galerie Nina Dausset in 1951 his art was hung alongside that of de Kooning, Hartung, and Pollock. Among many distinctions, Jean-Paul Riopelle won the Prix Unesco at the 1952 Venice Biennale, and the Grand Prix de la Ville de Paris in 1985.
