Claude A. Simard was born in Quebec City on July 9, 1943 and died in 2014. He was a painter for over forty years. He also created numerous works of graphic design and, from 1974 to 2001, was a full professor at Laval University.
The first exhibition of his art was in 1974 at the Zannetin Gallery in Quebec City, where he showed paintings inspired by scenes of everyday life. In 1981, while travelling in Holland, he discovered the wealth of intensities of colour that characterized his later canvases. His sources of inspiration grew to include nature and his travels.
His work is known throughout Canada and abroad, and his paintings have exhibited in museums in Quebec City, Baie-Saint-Paul, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Victoria. In 1991, twenty of his canvases were shown in Paris at the Orangerie of the Château Bagatelle. The exhibition was recognized by UNESCO as an activity for its World Decade for Cultural Development.
