Pierre Roger

The paintings of Pierre Roger 1949 Belgium, are so realistic that some people mistake his paintings for photographs. The artist's favourite theme is the female nude. Pierre Roger has his beauties pose on lush draperies, wrapping them in subdued light. Without the new look of the painting and the current appearance of the models, one might think we are looking at the work of a master from earlier times. The painter took classes in illustration and life drawing at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. In the 1980s during a stay in Brazil, Pierre Roger discovered a passion for old-fashioned techniques. The artist soon received accolades and public success followed. At a time when photography is at the forefront, he is another example of the creative craft, the difference between a mechanical result and one born of the artist's sensitivity.
