Pierre Philippe Bertrand (1884-1975) - 1975 Oil, Continental Street



A very fine French impressionist street scene by the artist Pierre Philippe Bertrand (1884-1975), depicting figures in a white town, in the artist's distinct style. Bold line and form characterises the architectural setting with an emphasis of geometry, while the figures appear walking away from the viewer, drawing the eye further into the composition. Signed to the lower right, and also signed and dated to the reverse. On canvas on stretchers.


Some surface discolouration. There are several areas of paint loss to the surface, mainly to the upper right and central area of the canvas.


55.3 x 46.1cm (21.8" x 18.1")

Artist Biography

Pierre Philippe was born in Lorient, France on May 4, 1884 and died in Noirmoutier-en-l'Ile in 1975. His family was originally from Luzon. Pierre Philippe Bertrand (Pierre-Bertrand) was a painter of light and color in the impressionist style. His favorite subjects were still lifes, small villages and the sea. He captured light and succeeded in taming its nuances.

Bertrand debuted in 1907 at the Paris Salons. His first one-man exhibition was in 1914 at a gallery in London. In that same year, painter, friend and gallery owner Pégot-Ogier would also honor Bertrand with an exhibition in Paris. Both exhibitions were very successful.

In later life, he loved the island of Yeu, where he painted each summer for over 30 years.
