IDBURY PRINTS

JACQUES PECNARD (French / 1922-2012)

Jacques Pecnard was born in Vincennes in 1922. An unhappy only child, he sought refuge in art from an early age. The first part of Pecnard's career was in the world of commercial illustration – advertising, books, newspapers. In 1967 Jacques Pecnard had his first exhibition at the Galerie Jean Giraudoux, and in 1971 he won the Grand Prix des Illustrateurs de Presse. From this time Jacques Pecnard moved into fine art and the illustration of fine press limited editions, and soon established a thriving market for his work in Japan and the USA as well as France. Our prints by Jacques Pecnard are signed lithographs inspired by the poems of Radiguet and Verlaine, and original colour lithographs inspired by the poems of Pecnard’s friend, the anarchist singer-songwriter Léo Ferré (1916-1993). Our photograph shows Pecnard with Ferré.
