'Still Life with Flowers of the Field', oil on canvas, by Pierre Ambrogiani (circa 1960s). Unique in its vertical orientation, the artwork depicts a spherical glass vase embracing a rainbow of Provençal flowers projecting upwards and outwards from its narrow aperture. The artist joyfully paints in thick impasto adding depth and texture to the stunning display of colour. The artist has also used a technique which leaves several intentionally exposed canvas spots. This provides subtle shifts in the canvas' hue. Please see the many photos accompanying this listing. The artwork has been professionally cleaned by an art restoration specialist and is newly framed in a tray. It is in fair overall condition and signed by the artist in the lower left hand. Upon request, a video of the painting may be provided.

About the Artist: Pierre Ambrogiani (1907-1985) was born in Ajaccio, Corsica. He grew up in the port of Marseille, where at the age of 12 he became a telegraph boy. It was not until 1937 that Ambrogiani decided to devote his life to art, like his brothers Pascal and Toussaint (who worked as Toussaint d'Orcino) and sister, Helene. Pierre was an expressionist mostly known for his wild, colourful palette of vibrant still-lifes and Provencal landscapes. He received the Prix International de la Biennale de Menton in 1951, the Grand Prix des Peintres Témoins de leur Temps in 1967, and the Prix du Gemail in 1968. In 1962, he was commissioned to decorate the Immaculate Conception of Marseille church with frescoes and stained glass windows. A major retrospective of his art was held at the Musée de la Vieille Charité de Marseille in 1973, with an important catalogueA prolific artist, Ambrogiani created more than 1500 paintings, seven sculptures, 1200 drawings and watercolours and 300 prints over his lifetime. His works are exhibited and collected worldwide and have sold widely at major auction houses over the decades increasing in value with time.
