Pierre Brissaud

Biography:Pierre Brissaud (December 23, 1885- 1964) was a French Art Deco illustrator, painter and engraver. He was born in Paris, France and trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and Atelier Fernand Cormon in Montmartre, Paris. His fellow Cormon students were André Marty, Charles Martin and Georges Lepape. Students at the workshop drew, painted and designed wallpaper, furniture and posters. Earlier, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh, and Henri Matisse had studied and worked there. His older brother Jacques Brissaud was a portraitist and genre painter and his uncle Maurice Boutet illustrated the fables of La Fontaine. A first cousin was the celebrated artist and celebrity portraitist Bernard Boutet de Monvel.

Brissaud is known for his pochoir (stencil) prints for the fashion magazine Gazette du Bon Ton published by Lucien Vogel, Paris. Many of his illustrations are realistic leisure scenes of the well-to-do. They illustrate the designs of Paris fashion houses such as Jeanne Lanvin, Chéruit, Worth, and Doucet. Brissaud's illustrations appeared in Vogue after it bought Bon Ton in 1925, as well as House & Garden and Fortune, and in books, for example, Madame Bovary and Manon Lescaut.

In 1907 he exhibited at the Salon des Indépendants and the Salon d'Automne.
