Pierre Bach (1906-1971) was a French landscape painter, born in Toul (Meurthe-et-Moselle). He transferred to the navy of Erbalunga in Brando (Haute-Corse) in 1930. A former student of the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Nancy where he mostly did design and decor, Corsica happily influenced his destiny. It revealed to him the beauty of its rocks, its mountains, its villages scattered on the slopes crowned by pine and chestnut forests. In his workshop, facing the sea, a stone’s throw from the Genoese Tower, he well described the splendor of the Corsican landscape as did other local artists also attracted by the beauty of the village, such as Albert Gillio or Marc Bardon.
From 1930 to 1932, he exhibited Corsican landscapes at the Salon des Indépendants. Two oil paintings on canvas, Paysage de Corse and Balagne, Corse (1948), are on display at the Toul Museum of Art and History. The artist died in 1971 in Erbalunga.
