André Minaux was a French artist best known for his stylized Social Realist paintings and prints that expressed contemporary life and art historical reference through abstracted figurative compositions. Born on September 5, 1923 in Paris, France, he studied under French painter Maurice Brianchon at the Ecole National Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris from 1941 to 1945. Exhibiting his work as early as 1944 at the Parisian Salon d’Automne and theSalon des Indépendants, Minaux found considerable recognition and critical acclaim. His work was celebrated at the 1949 Prix de la Critque, and he was the subject of a solo exhibition at the Galerie des Impressions d’Art in 1946. Notably, Minaux produced a monumental painting over 20 meters in length at the Maison de la Pensée Française in Paris in 1960, continuing his theme of depicting women in interior spaces—though they gradually became more abstracted throughout his prolific career. Minaux died on October 4, 1986 in Touquin, France.
