Original works of art

Hubert de Watrigant
(French, b. 1954 )

Hubert de Watrigant was born in 1954 and brought up in South West France where his father bred and trained racehorses. His maternal great grandmother, was a landscape artist.
The de Watrigant family had an inbred passion for horses and it was natural, therefore, that his artistic career should begin by sketching horses in his father’s stables. On leaving school he joined the Army to serve his year of National Service. He then moved to Paris and began to earn a living through various different jobs, although he continued to draw and paint in his spare time, enabling him to exhibit in various small shows.
In 1976 de Watrigant decided to become a full-time professional artist, holding his first one-man exhibition at Maisons-Lafitte. In 1977 he entered Les Sept Collines de Rome exhibition. He won first prize. De Watrigant uses a wide range of materials including charcoal, pastels, watercolour and oils and works on many different surfaces. His draughtsmanship is outstanding and he has a remarkable ability to capture both the ambience of his subjects and the drama of a fleeting moment.
