Francine SIMONIN

 

 

Born in 1936 in Lausanne Switzerland, Francine Simonin has been living and working in Montréal since 1968. During the last forty years, she has been involved in more than two hundred exhibitions, mainly in Switzerland and in Canada but also in France, the United States and Spain. During her prestigious career, she has won numerous awards and recognition, in particular, the first Swiss Biennial Event of Engraving Award in Geneva (1968), the Loto-Quebec Award in Montréal (1981), the Irène Raymond Award for the body of her work in Lausanne (1986), the Print award at the Drawing, Print and Paper Biennial in Alma (1993) as well as first prize at the 16th International Miniature Print Exhibition in Cadaques, Spain (1996). In October 2004, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and the Monique and Robert Parizeau foundation awarded her a prize for her exceptional contribution to the history of printmaking in Quebec. We find the works of Francine Simonin in the collections of the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Musée d’art et d’histoire de Genève, the National Art Gallery of Canada, the Art Bank of Canada Council for the Arts as well as in several private collections worldwide.
