The artist's biography
“Les Jonquilles” by Jean LACALMONTIE
A self-taught amateur in his youth, Jean LACALMONTIE became a professional painter and artist in late adulthood.
His works always display great purity of expression, inspiration and refinement. His predominantly figurative work, in which the watercolour has pride of place, features a wide range of original and varied themes.
The importance of the drawing, with its unerring and forceful line, underlies all his compositions.
His deep radiant colours render his subjects intensely alive.
Jean LACALMONTIE, a well-known painter from the Cantal, exhibits his rich and prolific body of work both in Paris and the provinces
