(French, b. 1938)
Born in Valence, known as the gateway to Provence, Pierre Boncompain is recognized as a modern French master, and inheritor of the colorist tradition. Over the last five decades he has exhibited in Hong Kong, Beijing, Osaka, Tokyo, Lausanne, the United States, and throughout France, most recently in a momentous retrospective at the Musée d'Art Contemporain Saint Martin in Montélimar. Several of the monumental early works from that special exposition will be shown for the first time outside of France in our current exhibition.
