I am grateful to M. Higonnet for his e-mail pointing out that there is now a fine official website dedicated to the work of a favourite artist of mine, Jean-Pierre Velly. The site hosts a good selection of images of Velly’s graphic work, a biography, and some other texts by and about the artist.

'Tempesta e Pipistrello' (Storm and Bat): oil on panel, 1980.


'Pirouette', watercolour; 1983.

I’ve written about Velly before, but I don’t think that the site was in full operation at that time. And, while I’m on the subject, I thought I might present a few more scanned images of Velly’s oil paintings and watercolours…

Bucranio' (Ox-skull), oil on panel; 1986.


'Natura Morta' (Still Life), oil on panel, 1988.

The images are from an exhibition catalogue simply entitled Jean-Pierre Velly, published in 1993 by Fratelli Palombi, Rome. Click on the images to see them enlarged.

Fascinating - thanks for introducing him!

A wee suggestion: the images you present on your wonderful site, might benefit a few readers like me, if titles, technique and dimensions were given, just like in an exhibition :)

I notice that Velly does not show dimensions on his website, so it is hard to get a sense of the scale of the works.

Marja-Leena: I usually put in titles, etc., such that (in most current browsers, anyway) the information should pop up when you hover the mouse pointer over the image. If that doesn’t work, the text should show up if you right click on the image and then choose ‘Properties’. I must admit, art being long & life short, that I usually don't bother to record the dimensions of the works that I feature…
