Pierre Daura (La casa Daura)


Spanish Catalan visual artist whose main body of work was strongly rooted in representation and the celebration of nature, although he returned to abstract themes throughout his life. He is included in standard texts on Spanish and Catalan painting and in 33 Pintors Catalans (Barcelona, 1937, reissued 1976) by the art critic Joan Merli.

In 1927, Daura met Louise Heron Blair of Richmond, Virginia, who was studying art in Paris, and they married in 1928. Their only child, Martha, was born on September 1930. They established permanent residence in Virginia, and Pierre became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1943.

In 1959, the Dauras built a contemporary house beside the springs at Rockbridge Baths where they lived the rest of their lives. Louise died on 10 November 1972 and Pierre on 1 January 1976. He was 79.
