IDBURY PRINTS

JEAN-LOUIS BOUSSINGAULT (French / 1883-1943)

Jean-Louis Boussingault was born and died in Paris, the city he celebrated in his magnificent lithographs for D'après Paris in 1931, which are one of the definitive records of Jazz Age Paris. He studied at the Académie Julian in the atelier of Jean-Paul Laurens, and then breifly at the Académie de la Palette, where his teachers were Charles Guerin, Georges Desvallières, and Pierre Laprade. Boussingault exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Indépendants from 1907, and the the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Tuileries from 1909. Jean-Louis Boussingault was closely associated with his fellow students at the Académie Julian, André Dunoyer de Segonzac and Luc-Albert Moreau; the trio shared a studio at the start of their careers, in a Saint Tropez villa rented from Paul Signac. The art of all three can be loosely defined as post-Cubist realism, and all three preferred to work in black-and-white or in muted colours. Other close associates of Jean-Louis Boussingault include Louis Valdo-Barbey, André Villeboeuf, and Lucien Mainssieux.
