PIERRE GRISOT, (1911 - 1995)
“At The Cafe”
An elegant painting of a young woman in a cafe by Pierre Grisot. Grisot was a French post-Impressionist artist who took his inspiration from the Parisian School of art. He painted in a lively light hearted style that was all his own.
Whether he was painting fashionable ladies of the day, nudes or flowers, his work was always full of colour and life. One of the most enduring features of Grisot’s work was his brilliant use of colour and his coquettish renditions of the female form.
He enrolled at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. There he studied for one year before he began studies at the Ecole des Beaux Arts where he received a diploma as a drawing instructor. Grisot initially taught painting and drawing but left to focus on his own art. He is also known for his hat and perfume advertisements for Christian Dior, and as a fashion illustrator for the journal ‘L’Officiel de la Mode et de la Couture’.
His first official exhibition was in Paris in 1942 and he travelled the world exhibiting his work in Germany, Belgium, Sweden and the United States.
