Jacques Pellegrin

Born in 1944 - France


Jacques Pellegrin is a French painter of the Nouvelle Figuration. At first influenced by the classic realistic current, he discovers impressionism which influences his works until 1970.

He studied German Literature in Aix-en-Provence but decided to dedicate himself to painting full-time in 1980 when he started to research German expressionism. Jacques Pellegrin was influenced by fauvists and French expressionists such as Vincent van Gogh, André Derain, Albert Marquet, Kees van Dongen, and Henri Matisse. He was also inspired by artists of the Provence and Marseille schools, including Auguste Chabaud, Louis-Mathieu Verdilhan, and Pierre Ambrogiani.

He uses vivid colors and contours his figures with thick, black brushstrokes. Each painting tells a story, an anecdote, a memory. Strongly anchored in his time, when Pellegrin evokes the past, he doesn't do it with nostalgia, but with tenderness.
