Pierre Grisot – Oil Painting – “Reflexions”
Painted with the artist in the background, Pierre Grisot has captured the youthfulness of this young woman with fabulous colour and light. In superb original condition.
A French post-Impressionist artist who originally studied engineering. Considered one of the members of the Parisian School of art, Grisot painted in a lighthearted 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 and was very different from the progressive styles of his contemporary painters. His paintings were quite contemporary nonetheless and now serve as vintage reminders of the style of the mid 20th Century. One of the most enduring features of Pierre Grisot work is his brilliant use of color and almost pixie-like renditions of the female visage.
At the suggestion of his family, he was trained as an engineer and even took a job as one in Besancon, France. However, Pierre Grisot secretly loved the arts and eventually enrolled himself 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 for a while but left after a short while to focus on his own art. Although he had been painting for some time, Pierre Grisot did not have his first official exhibition in Paris until 1942. After this, Pierre Grisot lived for a brief while in Tunisia and traveled the world exhibiting his work in Germany, Belgium, Sweden and the United States.
