Montréal 1922 - Montréal 2011

Pierre Gauvreau enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-arts in 1937 and became a member of the Contemporary Art Society (formed in 1939) which included Paul-Émile Borduas, John Lyman and others. He signed the Refus global in 1948. His interest in avant-garde literature influenced his visual thinking, and although he did not entirely embrace the current Surrealist theories, the legacy of the gestural freedoms associated with automatism appealed to him.
