JEAN-PAUL RIOPELLE (Montreal, Canada,1923-2002).
"Force des forêts", from the folder "Alechinsky, Calder, Miró, Riopelle", 1976.
Lithograph, copy 37/55.
Signed and justified by hand.
Maeght Edition for "Fondation de la Fédération International des Jeunesses Musicales".
Size: 34 x 47,7 cm.
This work belongs to the folder "Alechinsky, Calder, Miró, Riopelle" made up of four lithographs by Pierre Alechinsky, Alexander Calder, Joan Miro and Jean-Paul Riopelle.
Trained at the École Polytechnique and the École du Mémoire in Montreal, where he coincided with Paul-Emile Borduas, Jean-Paul Riopelle produced his first abstract works in the mid-1940s. In 1946 he began to exhibit with the group of Canadian Automatists. In 1947 he moved to Paris, where he met André Breton and his signature on the Surrealist manifesto "Inaugural Rupture", which in turn inspired the manifesto of the Automatists, the so-called "Global Refusal". He also comes into contact with the group of lyrical abstraction. His first personal exhibition takes place at the Galerie du Dragon in Paris in 1949. In the same year he took part in the exhibition ''Vehemencias enfrentadas'', with Pollock, Rothko, Mathieu or Sam Francis and became one of the most important painters of the School of Paris. In the 1960s he began to exhibit with the Maeght Gallery, where he showed his work regularly, and this was the establishment of his career. He was awarded the Paul Emile Borduas Prize in 1981. His work is currently housed in a multitude of museums and private collections.
