Born in 1920 in Shippagan N.B, Nérée De Grâce graduated from the École des beaux-arts in Québec City in 1948.
A commercial artist by trade, from 1955 on, he devotes a great deal of his spare time to painting until 1977 when, at the age of 57, he makes the leap to professional artist.
By the end of the 1970s, he starts collaborating with Edith Butler and Antonine Maillet for whom he will produce a massive piece that will serve as background for her play “La joyeuse criée”. The exposure resulting from those associations contributing to his notoriety, will result in Radio-Canada featuring him in a television special and Canada Post issuing a postage stamp featuring one of his works.
De Grâce leaves us in 1997, his oeuvre present in collections in Canada and Europe.
