This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Kirby Rogere (Rogère) 1929-2006

A versatile and prolific painter and sculptor, Kirby Daniel Rogers was born in Jeanerette, Louisiana on February 14, 1929 to Marguerite Minvielle and Kirby Serafin Rogers.  He painted still lives, landscapes and abstracts.  Rogère’s art was influenced by both his Cajun upbringing as well as by great artists, classical musicians and places from around the globe.  His work is populated with dancers, musicians, musical instruments and birds.  He also produced large number of French Quarter scenes and bayou landscapes.

From 1948 to 1952 he served in the US Navy and fought in the Korean War.  After being honorably discharged he went to New York City where he met and married Ariadne Pascual, daughter of  Manolo Pascual, a renowned Spanish sculptor from the Dominican Republic.  With Pascual’s encouragement, Kirby began his art career in earnest at age 26.

From 1955 to 1960 he lived in San Francisco, where he studied with Wilson Ellsworth and Frederick Grant.  In 1965 Kirby went to live in Cuernavaca, Mexico with his wife and children and became friends with and studied under the late Francisco Shum, a Spanish painter and refugee from the Spanish Civil War.  During this time Rogère also painted and sold his work in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana.

In 1975 Rogère moved back to the United States, and since then, he lived, painted and showed his art in galleries in Austin, New Orleans, Lafayette, and in his own gallery in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.   

Kirby lived off his art and supported his family with it for more than 50 years.  He died surrounded by his seven children in Austin, Texas, at sunset on March 11, 2006.
