Heffel Auction House Biography and Notes

Claude Vermette was born in Montreal, Quebec, in 1930. Like many important Post-War Quebec artists of the time, he studied art under Brother Jérôme Paradis (1902 - 1994). Through Paradis he met Paul-Émile Borduas and members of the Automatist group. While he belonged to the Automatist group, he was considered too young by Borduas to sign the Refus global manifesto. In the early 1950s he pursued his studies in Europe with prominent modernist architects Gio Ponti and Alvar Aalto, specializing in architecture and ceramics. Throughout his prolific international career, Vermette contributed to significant architectural projects such as numerous subway stations in Montreal, pavilions for the 1967 Montreal World's Fair, the 1970 Osaka World's Fair, General Motors in New York City and Bell Canada in Toronto, to name but a few. These three works dating from 1950 were executed when Vermette was a close friend of Paul-Émile Borduas and his circle of Automatist artists. Please note : these works are unframed.
