PIERRE AMBROGIANI (French / 1907-1985)

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. He received the Prix International de la Biennale de Menton in 1951, the Grand Prix des Peintres Témoins de leur Temps in 1967, and the Prix du Gémail in 1968. There was a major retrospective of the art of Pierre Ambrogiani at the Musée de la Vieille Charité de Marseille in 1973, with an important catalogue.
