André Minaux (1923-1986) was born in Paris, France in 1923. He studied at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs under French painter Maurice Brianchon from 1941-1945 . Minaux held his first solo exhibition in 1946 at the Galerie des Impressions d'Art in Paris. In 1949 and 1950 he showed with the Homme-Témoin, a group of French painters that promoted realism in an era when abstraction was the prevailing style. André's earlier works were more subdued but his palette became more vibrant in the early 60's.
