Artist: Joanny Title Pear Trees in the Fall Edition:: Handsigned and Numbered Limited Edition Serigraph on Canvas to 395 Image size: 24" x 30" About the Artist: Joanny is an accomplished painter living in the Provence region of southern France, where so many of the great impressionist masters—Cezanne, Matisse, Monet and Van Gogh—captured the extraordinary light and vivid colors of the unspoiled scenery. Joanny is inspired by the same vibrant landscape, from its deep lavender fields, olive groves and delicate almond blossoms to its charming countryside, farms and homes.
GENERATIONS OF CREATIVITY
Jean Tierant (Joanny) was born in Paris in 1931. His father was a master calligrapher and his mother worked as an architectural designer. Their rich creative influences instilled in Joanny a passion and talent for drawing.
In his early teens, he headed off to the stimulating environment of the Montmarte district of Paris where Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir and Matisse once lived. While in Paris, Joanny spent long afternoons in the studios of artists and friends of his parents, where he studied their techniques. They gave him brushes and canvases to use and encouraged him to develop his career. These mentors recognized the talent in one so young and were thrilled when he sold his first paintings and began his profession as an artist. Around this time he adopted the nom de plume “Joanny.”
THE ARTIST, THE BUSINESSMAN
But the money didn’t come in fast enough after Joanny married and started a family. As so many artists often do, he took other jobs. He was talented in sales; and once he made enough money to keep his family secure, he was able to turn his attention back to the life he had begun so many years before.
THE INSPIRATIONAL RETURN
Joanny eventually moved his family to Provence, where he established himself as a fine art painter. His exhibitions soon spread over many cities throughout southern France—Aix-en-Provence, Giens, Hyeres, Toulon, Marseille and La Seyne Sur Mer, and many others.
Joanny is especially skilled in creating figurative compositions using a rich palette to represent the emotional quality of the landscape. Joanny’s ability to construct dimension through color and shape invites the viewer to imagine walking into the scene. He has forged over time a very personal style that gives his landscapes an atmosphere of pure joy and exhilaration.
