Pierre Ambrogiani
Carpenter and Nursing Mother

Circa 1960s

About

'Carpenter and Nursing Mother', pencil, ink and gouache on paper (c. 1960s). A mother breast feeding her infant looks on peacefully at the father of the child as he works the tools of the trade in a joiner's workshop. The mother and baby bathed in sunlight - the joiner, veiled in the darker area of the workspace lost in his work and his thoughts. There is a story here that will be left to the viewer to construct. Look carefully. The colours are muted greys, blues and reddish browns in work of art that is a thought-provoking slice of everyday life. Signed by the artist in the lower right hand corner: 'P Ambrogiani'. A short video clip of this work can be provided upon request. About the Artist: Pierre Ambrogiani (1907 - 1985) was born in Ajaccio, Corsica. He grew up in the port of Marseille, where at the age of 12 he became a telegraph boy. It was not until 1937 that Ambrogiani decided to devote his life to art, like his brothers Pascal and Toussaint (who worked as Toussaint d'Orcino) and sister Helene. Pierre was an expressionist known for his wild, colourful palette of vibrant still-lifes and Provencal landscapes. He received the Prix International de la Biennale de Menton in 1951, the Grand Prix des Peintres Temoins de leur Temps in 1967, and the Prix du Gemail in 1968. In 1962, he was commissioned to decorate the Immaculate Conception of Marseille church with frescoes and stained glass windows. A major retrospective of his art was held at the Musee de la Vieille Charite de Marseille in 1973, with an important catalogue. A prolific artist, Ambrogiani created more than 1500 paintings, seven sculptures, 1200 drawings and watercolors and 300 prints over his lifetime. His works are exhibited and collected worldwide and have sold widely at major auction houses over the decades. This painting is in very good vintage condition commensurate with its age and painting medium. Looking very closely at the paper one may notice some minor blemishes which do not detract from the overall work. Newly framed and mounted covered in glass. Dimensions with frame: H 38 cm (15") W 44 cm (17.3") Dimensions without frame: H 24 cm (9.4") W 30 cm (11.8")
