Pierre Grisot (French, 1911 - 1995) was a French post-Impressionist artist who was a member of the Parisian School of art. Grisot developed his own quite distinctive light-hearted style. much loved!
His work was always full of color and life, and was very different from the styles of the contemporary painters. One of the most outstanding features of Grisot's work was his brilliant use of color, and his evocative renditions of the female face and her expression.
Grisot 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 was later in exhibitions with Vlaminck, Raoul Dufy and Villon.
Grisot exhibited at the Salon d'Automne, the Salon International de Monaco, the Salon des Peintres Français and the Art College in San Francisco. He lived in Paris and on the Côte d'Azur.
Grisot traveled the world exhibiting his work in Germany, Belgium, Sweden and the United States.
