The painter, writer, director and signatory of the Refus global, Pierre Gauvreau, died of heart failure Thursday at the age of 88.

Near the painter Paul-Émile Borduas, Gauvreau (1922-2011) was one of the signatories of Refusal overall in 1948, the manifesto of Quebec artists wishing to break with the homogeneity of the creative right-thinking company then.

Gauvreau, who has been associated with the automatic movement, was also the author of many successful serials, we think les temps d'une paix de Cormoran.

The sad news of the death of Pierre Gauvreau also reacted to the Minister of Culture and Communications Christine St-Pierre. Questioned on the sidelines of the press conference announcing the purchase of the rooms of the film follow parallel eXcentris by Friday morning, the minister said: "It was a very important man, a great man, good and extraordinary, which has never had an enemy in his life. I regret not having known more personally."
