About

Philippe Bonamy is a gifted contemporary French painter of still-life flowers, young girlhood, and nudes. He was born on June 17, 1926. Bonamy studied art at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts at Nantes and had his first one-man how in Paris in 1952. This was followed by exhibitions of his works in Paris, Germany, Mexico, and Great Britain from 1953 to 1960, and additional one-man shows in Paris in 1964, Mexico City in 1968, and Deauville in 1971. In recent years he has been a frequent exhibitor at such shows and salons as Automne, Peintres Témoins de leur Temps, Jeune Peinture, Indépendants, Comparaisons Beinnale des Paris, Terres Latines, Grands et Jeunes d’Aujourd’hui, and the Nationale Prestige Français (held in Texas). He was awarded the Lafont Prize and the Prize of the Nude at the National Salon in Paris. Bonamy’s 1973 American tour afforded American art lovers the opportunity of getting acquainted with his works at first-hand. Bonamy ‘s tour, which was an enormous success, earned hin many new friends and admirers in Daytona Beach, Jacksonville Corpus Christi, Houston, New Orleans and Lafayette, Louisiana. Bonamy is a diligent craftsman who is admired for his ingenuous style and his independent approach to art. His attention to detail and gesture and his fertile imagination and warmth of color have earned him a reputation as a modern Boticelli. Above all, he seems to be haunted by a vision of youthful, wide-eyed and voluptuous feminine beauty which he has painted over and over again. His best-known works include, “Jeune fille à la tapisserie,” “Nature morte d’Automne,” “Le Printemps,” “Jeune fille au canard,” and “Le Champs de coquelicots.”
