Pierrette Bloch, French-born Swiss artist, Died at 89


Pierrette Bloch was born on June 16, 1928, in Paris and died on July 7, 2017.

She was a Paris-born Swiss painter and textile artist.

She and her parents left France for Switzerland to escape the war.

When she was 15, Bloch began living on her own in a hotel, which she says helped foster very early on a complete sense of independence and autonomy.

Bloch began her professional artistic training at the end of the 1940s, taking courses in the plastic arts in Paris.

Pierrette Bloch passed away at 89 years old.
