Bright and colourful expressionist landscape ’Paysage’ by Pierre Ambrogiani

With a stunning rich impasto and bold and beautiful colour palette, ‘Paysage’ by Pierre Ambrogiani really pops of the wall. Ambrogiani was a French Expressionist painter, known for his Mediterranean landscapes, figures, and still lifes. His works often employ thickly painted bright oranges and reds. Born on January 16, 1907 in Ajaccio, Corsica, he grew up in Marseille where he taught himself to paint. He spent much of his life travelling the French countryside by car, stopping to paint en plein air wherever he saw a motif.

Pierre Ambrogiani 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 Hélène. Pierre Ambrogiani established his name with still lives of the fish of the Mediterranean and Provençal landscapes.
