Born in Valence in 1938, Pierre Boncompain is of an educated family who encouraged his love of the arts. He graduated first in his class at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris receiving the General Council of Drôme Prize, and then studied in the studio of Raymond Legueult at the École Nationale des Beaux Arts.
Pierre Boncompain's work is evocative of the environment and lifestyle of the South of France. He portrays a wide combination of modern influences, with exquisite tone combinations in a radiant and joyful Matissean clarity of light.
