About the Artist: Pierre Georges Vielledent, known as Pierre Dionisi (1904-1976), was born in Paris of Corsican origins. A pupil of Fernand Cormon and Raoul Arus, he exhibited at the Salon of French artists from 1921 to 1923 and received the Prix de Rome for painting in 1923, at the age of 19, for his 'Christ on the Cross'. Inspiration for his paintings was provided by his native land, Corsica and the sun-drenched South of France. He was also a sculptor of some renown.
