André Masson (äNdrā´ mäsôN´), 1896–1987, French painter and graphic artist. An exponent of surrealism until 1928, Masson developed "automatic writing" —spontaneous linear expressions of his personal mythology. After World War II he painted superb landscapes in Aix-en-Provence. His Meditation on an Oak Leaf and other works are in the Museum of Modern Art, New York City.
