Jean Pierre Laurent was born in 1920 in Burgundy and still lives in France. His creative lineage and the artistic heritage of his region were to have a profound influence on his career. Before entering boarding school he had already demonstrated his gift as a draftsman. By the age of 11 he was executing drawings and illustrations which showed exceptional talent and – something which is far more rare than technical virtuosity – a keen sense of human sentiment which would continue to mark his later works. Laurent’s paintings always communicate a feeling. He paints the regions, he knew as a boy, the rich, humid and poetic countryside of his native Burgundy.
