Tonnancour, Jacques Godefroy De, painter, photographer (b at Montreal 3 Jan 1917). His early influences ranged from the Group of Seven and Goodridge Roberts in his landscapes to Picasso in figure painting. Seventeen months (1945-46) in Brazil produced a formal brilliance and truthfulness in his landscapes. Back in Canada he temporarily abandoned landscapes (1946-50), and, influenced by Picasso, Matisse and Pellan, created his most accomplished still life and figurative paintings. He was a member of the 1948-49 Prisme d'yeux group, which opposed the Automotistes. By 1960, Tonnancour had produced his best-known simplified landscapes, as in Paysage de juin. The early 1960s saw a further simplification and abstraction of his landscapes as well as a subsequent experimentation with collage and foreign material, resulting in work which approaches pure abstraction. Tonnancour's L'Invisible dans le visible (1986) illustrates his interest in tropical and semitropical forests. Tonnancour has taught at the Musee des beaux-arts de Montreal and the Ecole des beaux-arts de Montreal.
