IDBURY PRINTS

PIERRE BRISSAUD (French / 1885-1964)

One of the greatest Art Deco artists and illustrators. Pierre Brissaud studied at the Beaux-Arts, Paris, and at the atelier Cormon alongside Charles Martin, André Marty and Georges Lepape. Pierre Brissaud's pochoir fashion plates for the Gazette du Bon Ton are just one part of a life's work that ranged from oil paintings exhibited at the Salon d'Automne and the Salon des Artistes Indépendants to advertising to livres d'artiste. We currently have two suites of plates by Pierre Brissaud. The first is a set of colour etchings for Les Contes du Lundi by Daudet, printed "au repérage", i.e. painstakingly registered one colour after another. The second is a suite of pochoir plates for the erotic classic La Leçon d'Amour dans un Parc. This achieves a very similar look by deft use of the pochoir technique, which requires each colour to be separately hand-painted through a stencil.
