Pierre Boncompain

Figurative Art, Modernism

December 18, 2020

Pierre Boncompain is a French contemporary painter, inheritor of the colorist tradition, widely recognized as a modern French master. Though his themes may seem simple – landscapes, still-lifes, and nudes – the artist still manages to offer his viewers a vision of life that is infinitely attractive, achieving it through continuous experimentation with intense color, expressive line, and flat, patterned surfaces.
