Born in 1943 in Champagne sur Oise, France, Jean Claude Tron began to paint at the age of thirteen. At sixteen he started work, but his desire to paint was so strong that he continued his art studies through evening classes.

Since then he has seen his reputation grow steadily throughout Europe and the United States, where his work is in constant demand and his originals sell for commanding prices.
