Pierre Thevenin is a painter born in Gray on March 9, 1905 in a family of musicians. Thevenin attended classes at the Conservatoire de Lyon and in 1923 obtained a first prize for cello. A semi-self-taught painter, he exhibited in 1928 at the Salon du Sud-est while pursuing his career as a musician. From 1932 his contracts as cellist in the orchestras of the great liners oblige him to travel the world. From these many trips (Italy, Morocco, Africa, South-East Asia) he brings back like any "traveling painter" pochades, sketches but also more accomplished works where the variety of landscapes and types seen here is declined with surprising ease. where there. Returning to Lyon in 1936, where he settled more permanently, he continued his career as a musician with the Lyon National Radiodiffusion orchestra but left it a few years later to better devote himself to his work as a painter. Tempted by mural painting, he was entrusted by the State with a vast decoration for the main staircase of the University's molding museum where, through five large compositions, he willingly gave in to contemporary themes; yet it is towards a more intimate painting that he will evolve: portraits, landscapes where sometimes passes a dazzling line and color which lets the influence of Jean Puy shine through.
