  Biography - Jacques Godefroy de Tonnancour  
   
 
Jacques Godefroy de Tonnancour was an important Quebec and Canadian Contemporary painter, born in Montreal in 1917. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal from 1937 to 1940. His early works in Laurentian landscapes were heavily influence by Goodridge Roberts. He spent seventeen months (1945-46) working in Brazil. Upon his return to Canada, he temporarily abandoned painting landscapes and turned to still life and figurative paintings, influenced by Pellan, Borduas and Picasso.

Jacques de Tonnancour began teaching at the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal in 1943, then at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal in 1954 as well as at the Université du Québec from 1969 to 1982. Jacques de Tonnancour was the recipient of many awards and prizes - The Canada Council Medal (1968); Louis Philippe Hébert Award (1979); Officer of the Order of Canada (1979); Concordia University Honorary Degree (1986); McGill Honorary Degree (1990); Officer of the National Order of Quebec (1993); Prix Marcel-Couture (2002).

In 1982, De Tonnancour abandoned painting and teaching and devoted the rest of his life to the study of insects (entomology), which had been a life-long interest.

His works can be seen at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, The National Gallery of Canada, The Musée du Québec, The Art Gallery of Ontario, The Lord Beaverbrook Art Gallery and several other important museums across the country.

Jacques Godefroy De Tonnancour died in Montreal in 2005.
