pierre montant


Born in 1941 in Geneva, Switzerland Pierre Montant grew up in Switzerland surrounded by his family.

He became a medical doctor in 1967 and worked in Paris as a consultant for construction of hospitals in the Middle East. It was from 1970 that he devoted himself exclusively to painting, which he practiced first in New York then in Boissano (Marie-Louise Jeanneret Foundation), or even in Rome.

Since 1985, Pierre Montant has lived and worked in Geneva, together with his wife, Theresa. They have a daughter, Alix, born in 1989.

The sweet pleasure of life is the fleeting illusion. A painting is the permanent illusion. A “magical” place is magical because it contains an enigma: it is up to the painting to show it!
