Jean-Paul Riopelle

The feeling of space, you find it in the leaf of a tree. A leaf represents a whole forest. What is important is to see it.

Jean-Paul Riopelle was born in Montreal, Canada in 1923. From childhood he starts to draw and paint. He studies at the Polytechnic School, then spends a brief and disappointing period at the School of Fine Arts and at the Furniture School in Montreal. Riopelle trains mainly under Paul-Emile Borduas who is at the top of the avant-garde and surrealismists. Riopelle produces his first abstract works . . .

Beyond works currently in stock, it seemed to me useful to combine business with pleasure by letting you discover others works by artists in my gallery. These artworks, now sold or removed from our website, have been in our stock in the past. These pages will undoubtedly make it possible for some of you to associate an image with its title or the other way round, for others it will be a good time to discover more on such and such artist. For the sake of confidentiality – the pieces being no longer available – we won't display neither their numbering or their price. For whatever reason, make sure to visit this amazing art database with to date 6441 online works just for your pleasure! Michelle Champetier
