About this item

Bernard Loriot comes from a modest and large family. In 1931, he began to draw and create watercolors. Self-taught, he trained by observing painters such as Henri de Saint-Delis, Alfred André Debergue, Paul Elie Gernez and Emilio Grau Sala who paint around the old Honfleur basin.
His father died in 1940 and Bernard Loriot had to work to help his mother provide for the family, while continuing to draw in his spare time. Bernard Loriot engages in the Resistance in secret from his mother. Volunteer for the Liberation, he followed the French forces in Austria. Demobilized at the end of 1945, he married in Honfleur on June 29, 1946. He returned to work to assume his new family responsibilities and gave up painting. But a work accident in 1950 immobilized him for several months. Encouraged by his doctor, amateur painter, as well as by his wife, he resumed his artistic activity.
He sent his works to the Salons in 1951, he was quoted in the local press in 1953 and a watercolor prize came to reward him at the exhibition of artists from Lower Normandy in Caen in 1954. He began to sell his works and would never stop to paint.
He inherits pastels from Paul Elie Gernez.
His first personal exhibition took place in 1956. In 1958, he opened a workshop with his comrade Gervais Leterreux who served him as an exhibition hall for many years.
In 1963, he met the Italian painter Dino Rossi with whom he would remain friends all his life. His first solo exhibition abroad, in Belgium, was held in 1973. Loriot discovered Venice in 1975. He then went on to solo exhibitions and traveled to France and abroad: Venice, Bruges, Germany, Paris… and sold his works in the United States, England, Japan, Germany.
He lost one of his sons in 1977.
Loriot frequented many painters of his generation: Jean Philippe Moretti, Jacques Bouyssou, André Hambourg, Raymond Poulin, Frank Innocent, Lavoine.
He died on December 18, 1998
