Biography Pierre Roy
A native of the port city of Nantes, France, Pierre Roy was raised by an amateur watercolorist who encouraged his children's artistic pursuits. Roy's family also had a history of seafaring, a legacy that prompted him to consider a naval career. Instead, he entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and, for a short time, studied architecture; he left for Paris in 1900 to assist in the preparations for the Exposition Universelle.
A few years later, Roy attended the Académie Julian and studied with Jean-Paul Laurens. He began exhibiting his paintings at the Salon des Indépendants and other venues for modern art. However, Roy's artistic identity coalesced after he met Giorgio de Chirico and Guillaume Apollinaire in 1913.&
