 Jean Constantineau (1928-2009) :

Born in Montréal on May 28, 1928 and died on June 15, 2009, Jean Constantineau studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Montreal from 1946 to 1951 with a focus on sculpture. These years of work have been successful since he received from the School the first prize for sculptures for a marquee study.

In 1952, he worked as a sculptor in the Parliament of Ottawa, then he joined the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation in 1953. He remained there until his retirement in 1984. In addition to his interest in sculpture, Jean Constantineau devoted himself more and more actively to painting.

His works, of a considerable number, are essentially figurative. Whether oils, gouaches, watercolors, pastels, or charcoals, his paintings sing the beauties of the Quebec landscape. In his painting, we find the hues of large hilly spaces, the brightness of the natural scenery.

You can feel the moving sky, the wind in the trees, the movement of nature. His works, no matter the medium, are all imbued with great sensitivity; one could also say of a humanity, a goodness of his vision of the world.

Jean Constantineau has lived fully in his painting and for him, any work, small or large format, must be studied and long worked to establish a certain climate of softness, harmony, subtlety and refinement.

The fascination exerted on us by Jean Constantineau's paintings is an enchantment created by a combination of a certain number of charm. He has developed over the years a specific writing so that one he warns can easily identify one of his paintings without the need to sign and there is no possibility to confuse it with any other.

His style, his colors, his constructions sign for him. His paintings have already been found in several galleries (Baie Saint-Paul, Brossard, Île-aux-Coudres, Rimouski, Quebec, Chicoutimi, and Montreal). He also worked in bronze, and his limited edition sculptures depicting Quebec legends and customs became collector's items.

Jean Constantineau has always liked to communicate his passion for painting, to advise young painters. He has, among other things, taught painting classes for several years. For him painting has always been something essential, vital. As he always said, "Painting is not difficult, it is not being able to paint that would be tragic.
