Biographical/Historical Note

Pedro Francisco Daura y Garcia was born on Minorca, Balearic Islands, Spain, a few days before his parents returned to their home in Barcelona and registered his birth there as February 21, 1896. In Paris, in 1914, his French identity papers were issued with Pierre as his given name, and that is how he is usually known; however, he is known as Pere where Catalan is spoken. Pierre's father, Juan Daura y Sendra, was a musician in the Barcelona Liceo Orchestra and a textile merchant. His godfather was the famed cellist Pablo Casals. His mother, Rosa de Lima Garcia y Martinez, died when he was seven. He and two younger siblings, Ricardo and Mercedes, were raised by their father, who never remarried. Pierre received his art education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Barcelona, known as “La Llotja.” His teachers included Jose Ruiz Blasco (Pablo Picasso's father) and Joseph Calvo. While at La Llotja he also worked for the stage designer Joaquim Jimenez y Sola. At age fourteen, with his young friends Emilio Bosch-Roger and Vidal Salichs, he set up a studio and sold his first painting at its inaugural exhibition to the Catalan artist and collector Pascual Monturiol, who said it reminded him of Paul Cézanne's work. In 1914, Calvo urged Pierre to go Paris to pursue his art career. He arrived there in the early summer that year and first worked in the studio of Emile Bernard, with whom he was friends for many years. Later, he studied engraving under André Lambert. From 1917 to 1920, Pierre served his three years of compulsory Spanish military service on Minorca and then returned to Paris. In 1923, while painting a mural in Normandy, the scaffolding collapsed. He was badly injured, and his left hand became permanently useless because of nerve damage. From 1925 to 1927, Pierre and Gustavo Cochet, an Argentine artist, designed and made batik material for couturiers until fire destroyed their studio and business. In the 1920s Pierre frequently exhibited with the group Agrupacio d'Artistes Catalans, usually in Barcelona. In 1922 and 1926 he exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in Paris, but in 1928 he joined four others rejected by the Salon, Joaquín Torres-García, Jean Hélion, Ernest Engel-Rozier, and Alfred Aberdam, and held a critically acclaimed exhibition at Gallery Marck: Cinq Peintres Refusés par le Jury du Salon. At the request of Charles Logasa, Pierre went to Villefranche-sur-Mer to meet Torres-García in 1925. He obtained and supervised a successful show for Torres-García in Paris at Gallery A.G. Fabre in 1926. With the sale proceeds, Torres-García moved to Paris. In 1927 Pierre met Louise Heron Blair of Richmond, Virginia, who was studying art in Paris, and they married in 1928. Several years later Louise's sister Jean married Hélion. In 1929–1930 Pierre joined Michel Seuphor and Torres-García in organizing the group Cercle et Carré (Circle and Square), which promoted geometric construction and abstraction in opposition to Surrealism. Cercle et Carré included Jean Arp, Wassily Kandinsky, Fernand Léger, Piet Mondrian, Antoine Pevsner, Kurt Schwitters, Joseph Stella, Georges Vantongerloo, and others. Pierre designed the group's logo, which appeared on stationary, posters, and the three issues of a review; Torres-García also used it later for his Círculo y Cuadrado (a name that also translates as Circle and Square) group in Uruguay. The only Cercle et Carré exhibition was held at Gallery 23, in Paris in April 1930. Virtually ignored by the French press at the time, Cercle et Carré is now considered of great importance in the history of modern art. The Dauras visited the medieval cliffside village of St. Cirq-Lapopie, France, while on their honeymoon in 1929. Pierre had sketched in the village in 1914 and had admired the terra cotta–roofed houses clustered around the towering church. One particular thirteenth-century house, although in bad condition, had especially intrigued him, and in 1929 he and Louise purchased it. They moved to St. Cirq in July 1930 and began the house restoration project that continued for most of their lives. Their only child, Martha, was born September 24, 1930. Pierre won the St. Cecilia prize (4,000 pesetas) at a painting competition at the Monastery of Montserrat, Catalonia, in 1931, and used the money for a painting trip to Deya, Majorca, during the winter of 1931/32. Pierre exhibited frequently in the years prior to the Spanish Civil War, with solo exhibitions in Paris at Gallery René Zivy in 1928, in Barcelona at Gallery Badrinas in 1929 and 1931, at Gallery Syra in 1932 and 1933, and at Gallery Barcino in 1935. Pierre, with his family, made his first trip to the United States in 1934–35, where he and Martha met Louise's family. Many Virginia landscapes he painted during this period were sold at the Gallery Barcino exhibition in Barcelona. In February 1937, at age forty-one, Pierre joined the Republican militia to fight against General Francisco Franco's forces. He was a forward artillery observer and was seriously wounded on the Teruel Front in August 1937. Sent home to France to convalesce, Pierre was given a medical discharge. Because he refused to return to Spain after the war, his Spanish citizenship (and Martha's) was revoked by the victorious Franco government. Louise became seriously ill, and in early July 1939 the family made an emergency medical trip to Virginia. She recovered, but World War II prevented their return to France. They established permanent residence in Virginia, and Pierre and Martha became naturalized U.S. citizens in 1943. Following the war, the family returned to their home in St. Cirq most summers. Rockbridge Baths is a small village in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains, near Lexington, Virginia, named after the warm springs once used as a spa. Louise's mother gave her property there, including the springs, and the Dauras used a modest building on the land as a vacation home beginning with their first visit to Virginia in 1934–1935. They also lived at the Baths after they came to Virginia in July 1939 until early 1942, when they moved as caretakers to “Tuckaway,” an historic property in Rockbridge County near Lexington. In the late summer of 1945 they moved to Lynchburg, Virginia, where Pierre was chairman of the art department at Lynchburg College for the 1945–1946 academic year. He taught studio art at Randolph-Macon Woman's College from 1946 to 1953, then returned to painting and sculpture full time. 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 November 10, 1972, and Pierre on January 1, 1976. They are both buried in the cemetery of Bethesda Presbyterian Church in Rockbridge Baths. In the later years of his life, Pierre said, “All I have ever wanted to do is to find a way to paint. I have painted. I have worked. I have given myself to my art. That is what I have wanted since my very early age . . . to be an artist, good or bad . . . that is what I am.” His prolific output of works in many media (painting, drawing, sculpture, engraving) and the diversity of his subject matter (landscape, still-life, portrait, figure study, abstract) attest to his lifelong commitment to his art. Although the main body of Pierre's work was strongly rooted in representation and the celebration of nature, 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. Before the Spanish Civil War, Pierre ambitiously pursued an artistic career. Subsequently, he created for his own satisfaction, fulfilled commissions, and sold works to support his family. He did not sell through commercial galleries after leaving Europe in 1939. Rather, he sold from his home or at exhibitions at academic venues and local art clubs. In the opinion of his daughter, Martha, traumatic experiences in the Spanish Civil War, followed by the tragedies of World War II, changed his outlook; personal fame ceased to be important. His work is now included in many private collections, primarily in Barcelona, France and Virginia. Major collections are also held by some forty-eight museums in France, Spain, and the United States. The medieval village where Pierre passed so much of his life, St. Cirq, is a French historic monument, as is his former home. The Daura property was donated to the French Région Midi-Pyrenées in 2002, and it is now used as an artists' colony, “Les Maisons Daura,” administered by the Maison des arts Georges Pompidou. Scope and Content

The archive provides primary sources relevant to Pierre's life and work, particularly his role in the formation of Cercle et Carré in Paris, 1929–1930, and his experiences as a Republican soldier in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War. It contains his writings; exhibitions material covering his artistic career; photographs, videos and films of his family, friends, art, and homes in France and Virginia; and correspondence with family, friends, and colleagues, notably André Breton, Jean Hélion, and Joaquín Torres-García.

The archive also houses the papers of Pierre's wife, Louise Blair Daura. There are letters to her family from the late 1920s until her death in 1972, with perceptive observations of the people and events around her, in France and in the United Sates, as well as unpublished manuscripts and lectures.

Also included are published and unpublished writings of Louise's father, Lewis Harvie Blair, a prominent businessman of Richmond, Virginia, who achieved notoriety challenging the accepted Richmond beliefs with respect to free trade and the position of African-Americans in the 1880s.

Series 8: Family Correspondence

This series contains correspondence, the majority of which is from the 1930s through the 1960s. Letters between Louise and Pierre at the front in 1937 are in Box 12, Spanish Civil War series. Box 78 includes two letters to Pierre written by Navarra not long after he was found by American troops on a pile of bodies at Mauthausen on May 5, 1945. The letters give a history of his imprisonment beginning with that by the Vichy French Government in November 1941.
In 1927 Louise began writing letters to “Dear family” when she was not in Richmond where most of them lived. The letters were more or less weekly and were usually mailed to her mother, Martha F. Blair, but they were intended for circulation to all of her interested family members. From the outset, when Louise was in Paris, these letters contained astute comments about life in France in general and the art scene in particular. After her engagement to Pierre, the family letters expanded to include their activities, and information about Pierre's artistic life. Louise often described Pierre's works, and because he seldom dated them, the family letters became a virtual history of Pierre's production.

Series 10: Oversize items

Items in the oversize box are indexed in the container lists where they would actually be if they fit the container. Instead, a relocation sheet is used to represent the missing item.
 

Series 11: Clippings (Original)

In accordance with archival practice, most original clippings have been removed from their appropriate containers, and copies have been substituted.
The originals are stored in this series, and their file folders or internal wrappers are labeled to identify the containers from which they were removed.
Copying large clippings often requires several smaller pages, making it difficult for a user to match the pages and read the text with ease, especially when the clippings are in a foreign language. When there are multiples of clippings, at least the two best originals are usually stored in this series, but to facilitate reading, the extra originals are left in the appropriate containers.
