Fernand Piet (1869 - 1942)
“Nina Senf avec dandy”
(scribled on the back in pencil)
At the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon des artistes français he exhibited his canvases and engravings of landscapes of Brittany. Holland and the South, and representations of common scenes: parks, children, markets. Piet is also the author of numerous female nudes and rare seascapes.
The economic wealth that his family provides him and the fortunate financial speculations on the Stock Exchange, allow him to lead a comfortable social life with his friends Lucien-Victor Guirand de Scevola, Edmond Lempereur and Jean-Louis Forain.
Below, some examples of his drawings.
