André Masson (Balagny-sur-Thérain, 1896 – Paris, 1987) At the age of twenty-six years old, Masson moved to Paris, where he frequented surrealist artist circles and met artists like, P. Eluard, M. Ernst and A. Breton. From 1924, Masson’s paintings appeared as an immediate “automatic writing” that projected the artist’s psychic impulses on the canvas, or rather, the artist’s vital force. In 1927, at the Café du Dôme di Montparnasse, Masson met Giacometti, who introduced him to chalk sculpting techniques. In 1929, Masson had two solo exhibitions in Paris. During this period, he created theater sets and worked on engravings. After having lived in the United States from 1941 to 1945, his paintings were enriched with his own magical and fantastical ideas of the American Indian culture. Masson made several trips to Italy, especially to Venice, where in 1958 he was a guest at the Biennial. That same year, he had a solo exhibition in Tokyo and New York. The year 1952 marked the end of “spontaneous painting” and Masson dedicated himself more intensely to engravings. Nonetheless, he still held several exhibitions in the United States. In 1987, Masson died during the night at his apartment in Paris. 2016 “André Masson” Galerie Natalie Seroussi, Paris
