Pierre-Yves Tremois : Born in 1921 in Paris, he was admitted to the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in 1938. He then worked in the studio of Fernand Sabatté, a former student of Gustave Moreau. In 1943, he was awarded the Grand Prix de Rome in painting. A fervent lover of literature, he uses the richness of his drawing line to illustrate great artists’ books such as Ovid’s Art of Love (1962). In 1961, he participated with Bernard Buffet, Dalí, Leonor Fini, Foujita, Mathieu and Zadkine in the illustration of The Apocalypse of Saint John, a unique work designed and produced by Joseph Forêt. Pierre-Yves Trémois was passionate about engraving without neglecting other mediums. For example, he created a tapestry for Aubusson in 1976 as well as a monumental sculpture commissioned by the RATP for Châtelet les Halles station. Fascinated by Japan and prehistoric art, the artist has developed a singular aesthetic where eroticism prevails. His works, with their pure and sober lines, are powerful and encourage reflection and contemplation about the origins of man. Colour has almost no place in his universe where purity dominates. On February 8, 1978, he joined the Academy of Fine Arts (in the engraving section) of which he had become the dean. Several exhibitions were devoted to him as in 2019 at the Refectoire des cordeliers in Paris.
