Jean-Paul Riopelle (1923 - 2002 )
Jean-Paul Riopelle, fils de Léon Paul (Léopold) Riopel et de Anna Rita Riopel, né le 7 octobre 1923 à Montréal et mort le 12 mars 2002 à Saint-Antoine-de-l'Isle-aux-Grues, est un peintre, graveur et sculpteur canadien.
Formation : Jean-Paul Riopelle commence à dessiner très jeune. En 1929, son père Léopold confie Jean-Paul Riopelle à un artiste montréalais, Henri Bisson. Ils se retrouveront chaque samedi pendant une dizaine d'années pour peindre des paysages, des personnages et des natures mortes. Il est étudiant, en 1941 et 1942, à l'École polytechnique de Montréal. Son jeune frère Pierre meurt en 1930. Cette expérience avec la mort lui laisse des traces profondes.
Carrière : Dans les années 1940, il est un élève de Paul-Émile Borduas à l'École du meuble et devient membre du mouvement artistique des Automatistes. Il est l’un des signataires du manifeste le Refus global. En 1949, il s'installe à Paris, où il continue sa carrière en tant qu'artiste. C'est à ce moment qu'il devient réellement Automatiste, rencontrant les Surréalistes et son fondateur André Breton. Il le surnomme par ailleurs « le trappeur supérieur ». Après avoir rencontré le succès à Paris, il revient au Québec définitivement en 1990. Il passe plusieurs années à perfectionner la technique du all-over, qui consiste à éliminer toute forme de perspective dans le tableau au moyen d'éclats de peinture en couches multiples, technique picturale emblématique de l'artiste américain Jackson Pollock. Par la suite, il se tourne vers la peinture au pochoir avec des bombes en aérosol. Enfin, il renoue avec la figuration : c'est l'arrivée des oiseaux. Il termine sa carrière avec quatre 1er prix internationaux et devient, par le fait même, l'un des plus grands peintres de l'histoire du Canada. À sa mort, le gouvernement du Québec lui réserve des funérailles nationales.
Héritage : Son œuvre la plus célèbre est l'Hommage à Rosa Luxembourg. Cette œuvre immense fut créée en hommage à Joan Mitchell, lorsque Riopelle apprit sa mort. Riopelle a ceci de particulier qu'il est peut-être le seul peintre québécois du xxe siècle à avoir pleinement vécu la grande période parisienne de l'après-guerre. Une grande exposition, organisée par le musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, a été présentée en 2006 au musée de l'Ermitage à Saint-Pétersbourg en Russie. La place Jean-Paul-Riopelle a été aménagée en face du Palais des Congrès de Montréal.

RIOPELLE, Arthur Jean (1920 - 2012)

Arthur J. Riopelle, PhD, passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 11, 2012, at the age of 91 at the home of his daughter Jean in Houston, TX. Dr. Riopelle, one of six children born to the late Wilfred G. Riopelle, MD and Ann Schroeder Riopelle, was born in Thorp, Wisconsin, and grew up in nearby Beaver Dam. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin, then joined the US Army in 1942, eventually serving in Italy. After the war, he returned to the University of Wisconsin to earn his PhD in experimental psychology. He subsequently enjoyed a distinguished career as a primate biologist, educator, and administrator. He initially taught at Emory University. In the late 1950s, he became Director of the Psychology Division of the Army Medical Research Laboratory in Fort Knox, Kentucky, where he worked with the Army and Air Force in the first successful effort to send monkeys into space and return them safely to earth. His research on the effects of radiation helped protect future astronauts. In 1959 he became Director of the Yerkes Laboratories of Primate Biology in Orange Park, Florida, where he conducted psychological and biomedical research. Dr. Riopelle subsequently became the first director of the Delta Regional Primate Research Center in Covington, Louisiana. He became respected internationally for his work on primate learning and nutrition. The final portion of his academic career he spent as a Boyd Professor of Psychology at Louisiana State University where he guided the early careers of LSU graduate students. He will also be remembered for his more than 150 scientific publications and book chapters and for the articles he wrote for National Geographic Magazine about the first-ever-described albino gorilla-Snowflake-that his research team found in Rio Muni, Africa, and subsequently transported to enjoy a long and happy life at the Zoological Garden of Barcelona, Spain. Dr. Riopelle was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Mary Jane Astell Riopelle, his brothers Wilfred J. (Lois) and Rheo (Mary), and his sisters Elaine (Herbert Paul) and Beatrice (Dave Youker). He is survived by his twin brother, Armand, of Melbourne, FL ( Alma), his sister-in-law, Lois Riopelle of Naples, FL, three children-Mary Ann Riopelle (V. Cecil Wright, MD), James Riopelle, MD (Jamie Manders, DDS), and Jean Riopelle Guez, PhD, three grandchildren-Julia, Jonathan, and Benjamin Guez (Brenna Beers); and one great grandchild, Grace Catherine Guez. Dr. Riopelle was a devoted family man, frequently traveling across the country and through Canada to visit children, brothers and sisters, and to attend Riopelle family reunions. In addition, he was an avid golfer (hitting at least 4 holes-in-one during his time on the course)-playing most recently at Sherwood Forest Country Club and LSU, an amateur violin performer, and a supporter of the performing arts at LSU. He was a true scholar and a gentleman. In lieu of flowers, friends are asked to make contributions in his memory to the LSU Library.

Upon graduation, Riopel was offered a position with the New York Giants, but turned it down. Instead, he assumed coaching duties at Milford (Mass.) High School, where he led both the basketball and baseball teams to several state championships.
In 1933, he became the freshman baseball, football and basketball coach at Holy Cross. Eventually, he filled the role of varsity coach in all three sports.

He was a three-sport standout at Holy Cross, earning an amazing 11 varsity letters as a Crusader. The baseball team won 100 games during his four years, while the football team posted a 25-10-1 mark. He was a key playing the Crusaders' upset of Syracuse on the gridiron in 1921, and his game-saving catch helped snap Boston College’s 23-game baseball winning streak in 1923.
