THOMARAT, Jeanne A. (Aline)

Lyon, France, 1893
?, ?
Notice biographique
Jeanne Thomarat was born in Lyon, France in 1893. She immigrated to Canada in 1905 after being trained as a pattern maker in her native France. She is a self-described "primitive" artist because she received no training and did not desire any. She and her husband, a handyman, settled in Duck Lake, Saskatchewan, where Thomarat "tried to paint places that are not busy, everybody in a hurry ... where people can relax and enjoy life." She was one subject of a documentary produced by the CBC program Spectrum in 1979 on folk artists, which brought the National Gallery's attention to previously unknown artists.
