Jean-Philippe Dallaire was born in Hull in 1916 and died in 1965 at the age of 49. He studied art at the École technique de Hull and at Central Technical School of Toronto from 1932 to 1935. In 1938 and 1939, he pursued his studies, first at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal and after, at Ateliers d'art sacré and Académie André Lhote in Paris. During the German occupation of Paris, Jean Dallaire and his wife were sent to an internment camp. His wife was released six months later but Dallaire's internment was extended. This experience deeply impacted his work. After the war, he returned to Canada and taught at the École des Beaux-Arts in Québec City from 1945 to 1952. He was hired by the National Film Board as an animator, first in Ottawa (from 1952 to 1956) and then in Montreal (from 1956 to 1958). Meanwhile, he kept his painting workshop where he created large canvasses reflecting analytical cubism and received tapestry design commissions. Jean Dallaire held several individual exhibitions in France and Canada and was awarded a painting prize by the province of Québec. He lived in Vence, in the southern part of France, until his death.
