Artist bio- After graduation from the Ecole des Arts Appliques, Paris, Pierre Violard turned his talent to fabric design, illustration work and set costume design, at the same time working at his painting and waiting patiently, or perhaps impatiently, for the kind of recognition which enables an artist to live without odd jobs. First came a groub show at the Galerie Charpentier in 1957, followed by participation in many Salons, including the prestigious National des Beaux Arts, and then a first one-man show in Paris in 1959.
Art description- The exquisitely gentle beauty of dawn. A rainbow sky of pastel pink, blue and gold is glimpsed through a veil of misted foliage and a delicate tracery of branches.
