Many sources cite Andre Gisson as a French painter, but in fact he was a struggling painter in New York City who decided to enhance his reputation by claiming he was French and born earlier (1910) to be more closely aligned with the founders of the Impressionist movement.  His real name, according to his son-in-law, Anthony Winston, was Anders Gittelson.

Following is an obituary of the artist from the New York Times Classifieds, 8/24/2003:

GITTELSON--Anders.  (showing 500 of 6264 characters).
