Pierre Philippe Bertrand 1889-1975)

Pierre Philippe was born in Lorient (Morbihan), France May 4, 1884 and died in Noirmoutier-en-l'Ile in 1975. His family was originally from Luzon. Pierre Philippe Bertrand (Pierre-Bertrand) was a painter of light and color in the impressionist style. His favorite subjects were still lifes, small villages and the sea.  He captured light and succeeded in taming its nuances.

Bertrand debuted in 1907 at the Paris Salons. His first one-man exhibition was in 1914 at a gallery in London. In that same year, painter, friend and gallery owner Pégot-Ogier would also honor Bertrand with an exhibition for in Paris. Both exhibitions were very successful. Unfortunately, the First World War erupted and interrupted Bertrand's artistic career. He joined the resistance. In December 1915, Bertrand was captured behind enemy lines and imprisoned Mannheim Camp. While a prisoner, he painted portraits of his comrades. After the war, he was awarded the War Cross for his bravery.

After returning to France, he discovered the beauty of Noirmoutier-en-l'Ile, which is situated to the north of the island of Noirmoutier, in the Atlantic Ocean. It was here that Bertrand would open his first studio. To Bertrand the island represented paradise because it helped him fill his canvases with the magical light of the Mediterranean. He also loved the island of Yeu, where he painted each summer for over 30 years.
