This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

An expressionist painter in bright colors of portraits, landscapes and still life, Pierre Ambrogiani was most noted for landscape and harbor scenes, in oranges and reds, especially of the countryside along the Mediterranean Sea.  Ambrogiani also did engravings.

He was self taught but by age 30 had his first exhibition, which was in Marseilles, France.  In 1946, he had an exhibition of his work in Paris, and the following year in New York City.  A retrospective of his work was held in Marseilles in 1973, and shortly after that he was disabled by disease.

He died in 1985, age 81.

Biography from Cotai Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A self-taught artist, Pierre Ambrogiani drew with dexterity.  His friends (M. Pagnol, J. Giono, R. Charmet, A. Verdet, R. Barotte, ...) were unanimous to speak about his intense work filled with luminosity.

He participated in major exhibitions: Paris (1946), New York (1947), ... and was very often rewarded - Peintres Témoins de leur temps (Grand Prix 1967), - Prix du Gemmail en 1968 (consacré "Peintre de Lumière") - Prix international (Menton 1951).  In 1973, the city of Marseille organized a jubilee exhibition to great his fifty year long career.
