Biography Leo (Louis Leon) Gausson
Leo Gausson was a student of the engraver Theophile Chauvel and worked in the print shop of Eugene Froment as a young man. In 1883, the print shop closed and Gausson formed a trio with fellow workers and artists Cavallo-Peduzzi and Max Luce. Gausson shared studio space with these artists from that point on in Paris.
Though he lived a relatively long life, Gausson's career as a painter really only lasted from 1886 to 1900. During this period, Gausson painted in neo-Impressionist and Symbolist styles. Towards the end of the 19th century, Gausson generally worked in lithography and illustration, and focused more on writing poetry. Like fellow artist Toulouse-Lautrec, Gausson generally became known for his posters and vibrant prints.
