C. Pierre Latour is the nom de plume of an artist who studied in France and now resides in the United States. Born in 1935, Latour learned how to paint from his artist father, who painted in a traditional, academic style. As Latour grew and developed as an artist, he created his own unique style. One of his favorite subjects is the flower market, which has become a hallmark of his paintings.
Paintings by Latour are best known for the beautiful colors in his palette. Whether a flower market, a city scene, or a barge on the river, all of his paintings are based on the same location from his imagination.
