Born in Montreal, Quebec, 1922 -
André Jasmin received his B.A. from the University of Montreal; followed by two years of study at I'Ecole du Meuble under Borduas, Pellan, Maurice Gagnon (art history) and Parizeau (architecture).
He became active in the field of costume and set designing and did costumes and set designs for "Les Compagnons" of Montreal who presented Les Fourberies de Scapin in New York City in 1945. He also designed costumes and sets for two Canadian ballets: La Gaspésienne and Papotages for the Ruth Sorel Company.
As a painter, he held his first one man show of ink drawings, charcoals, and water colours in Montreal in 1947. Other one man shows followed in 1948, 1951, 1952, 1955, 1956 while he also participated in group shows in Montreal, Quebec City, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Ottawa at the National Gallery.
His 1956 solo show was given at The Collector's Gallery, New York City, and the foreword for the exhibition catalogue was written by Jean René Ostiguy, of the National Gallery of Canada. His work has been influenced by Braque, also Rouault but much of his work is non-figurative.
He exhibited his non-figurative paintings at Centre d'Art du Mont-Royal in 1965. He is respected not only as a serious painter but as a teacher. He is Professor of École des beaux-arts de Montréal and gave a series of gallery talks at the National Gallery of Canada on Cézanne, Tintoretto, Rembrandt, Chagall, Bonnard, Pellan, Borduas, and Riopelle during the fall of 1966.
