Notes

Anne Marie Nivoulies de Pierrefort was a French Impressionist painter born in Toulon in 1879. After school, she studied in Paris, where she attended classes held by leading artists such as the Impressionist painter Pierre- Auguste Renoir and Post-Impressionist painter Pierre Bonnard. In the early 1900s, she travelled to Tunisia, where she painted several Mediterranean landscapes. In 1938, she moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, initially settling on Paquetá Island, from where many of her most popular subjects were painted. Her Brazilian paintings from this period combine a rich tropical colour palette with rapid Impressionist brush strokes. The artist exhibited frequently, including two solo shows at the National Museum of Fine Arts, Rio de Janeiro in 1946 and 1956.
