About

Expressionist French Landscape, Bright Colours, Oil Painting circle of Pierre Ambrogiani (French 1907-1985) Oil painting on canvas, unframed Canvas size: 6.5 x 9.5 inches Beautiful expressionist painting of a sunset over the rural fields in Southern France. The pinky/red colours and dark yellow skyline suggests a low sun light, over rich colourful greens and blues to interpret the landscape. The work is unsigned but very close to Pierre Amgbrogiani. Pierre Ambrogiani was born in Ajaccio, Corsica, although he was brought up in Marseille, where he continued to live and work for the rest of his life. He was an Expressionist painter of Provençal landscapes, still lifes, and nudes. Entirely self taught, he sustained a long career of over fifty years, with international recognition. He participated in his first major exhibition with a group of fellow Provençal artists in 1936 in Marseille: numerous exhibitions followed, including one in Paris in 1946 and another in New York in 1947. He also illustrated many books, especially those written by his friend Marcel Pagnol, whose works evoked the hard, but lyrical, way of life in Provence in the early twentieth century. In 1973 Pierre Ambrogiani had a major retrospective exhibition at the Musée de la Vielle Charité in Marseille, and died after a long illness in 1985. The sun and colours of Provence were a constant theme throughout his work, coupled with his enduring delight in the bustle and energy of the picturesque old Port of Marseille. Paintings by Pierre Ambrogiani can be found at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris, and permanent collections in museums in Menton, Marseille and Montpellier. He exhibited in Paris, Marseille, New York, London, Turin, Zurich and Stockholm. In 1951 he was awarded 1st Prix Internationale à la Biennale de Menton. Pierre Ambrogiani died in 1985 The thick brush stroke is a lovely feature, as it creates some depth to the painting. This would look great within an eclectic collection of paintings all together! Condition report: The painting and canvas are in excellent condition.
