André-Aimé-René Masson; 1896-1987, French painter, sculptor, illustrator, designer and writer. Masson studied painting in Brussels and then in Paris. Served in the French Army 1914-19, and was gravely wounded. Lived 1919-22 in the South of France, then returned to Paris where he met Gris, Derain, and later Miró and Breton. He joined the emergent Surrealist group in the mid-1920s after one of his paintings had attracted the attention of the movement’s leader, André Breton. Masson lived in Spain from 1934 to 1936 and in the United States during World War II.
