French, 20th – 21st century, male.

Born November 1947, in Ferryville, Tunisia.

Painter, watercolourist, pastellist, lithographer. Landscapes, seascapes, still-lifes.

Jean Gabriel Montador was self-taught. In 1989 he became an official painter to the French navy. Montador has an excellent command of the technique of trompe-l'oeil, and combines the realism of his representation with a very personal touch of magic that inclines towards an ironic Surrealism.
