This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Armand Frederick Vallée (1921-2009)

Born in 1921 into a family of artists, writers and musicians in Austria, art was a way of life.  Armand received his formal art training and education at the Academy of Fine Art in Munich with post graduate studies at the Academy of Fine Art in Dusseldorf.  War broke out and interrupted his life but after the war he continued his studies at the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna, moved on to Switzerland, and began to rebuild his career.  In 1951, he left Europe for North America.

From then on,  he captured the Canadian North on canvas, painted from Alaska to Mexico; desert and mountain landscapes, studies of Native Indians, contemporary city life.  He painted the oil industry in the field, cells under a microscope, ceremonial Munecas, spiritual Totems at Queen Charlotte Islands and Alaska.  The essence of shifting energy and motion is captured in his latest observation studies in oil, called Zeitgeist.

Armand painted in oil as well as in watercolors.  He also worked in casein colors, gouache, silk-screen, stone print, lino cut, pastel and charcoal.

Armand Vallée died suddenly in February of 2009.
