Fernand Pelez (French painter) 1848 - 1913
Without Roof, 1883
oil on canvas
136 x 236 cm.
Petit Palais, Paris, France
Fernand Pelez was a French painter of Spanish origin who worked in Paris. Pelez portrayed social issues in a realistic style.
Pelez was a commercial failure in the 1880s, and after the failure of his L'Humanité at the Salon of 1896, Pelez became something of a recluse, refusing to exhibit or sell his work.
A major exhibition of his work was mounted in Paris, at the Petit Palais, Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris, from 24 September 2009 to 17 January 2010
