Jean Paul Riopelle

Jean Paul Riopelle, painter, sculptor and engraver: He trained under two completely different masters: the academic painter Henri Bisson, who considered even the Impressionists a bit too extreme, and Paul-Émile Borduas, who was totally immersed in the avant-garde and surrealist movements. Riopelle joined the AUTOMATISTES school, exhibited with them in Montréal in 1946 and 1947, and in 1948 signed the REFUS GLOBAL (worldwide refusal) manifesto.
