Biography from Cotai Fine Art:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

He became enchanted at an early age with many of the artists who exhibited their work in his father's gallery.  This group, including Friez, Dufy, Lagar, and Leprin were frequent guests in the family home.  Bouyssou studied architecture at the Beaux Arts de Troyes, and drawing with the sculptor Janin.  When he moved to Paris to study at the Academie de la Grand Chaumiere in the studio of D'Othon Friez, he discovered his love for painting.  Bouyssou was tutored by Friez, and quickly became a master of the beach and port scenes of Normandy.  His paintings remind the viewer of Marquet with their luminosity, and of Utrillo, particularly his street scenes.  In 1950 he married.  Life was difficult for the young couple, but his desire to succeed as an artist was not diminished.  After exhibiting a few paintings in many different galleries, he finally arranged a one-man show in Paris.  That successful show led to one-man exhibitions in London and New York.  In 1968, Bouyssou began exhibiting frequently in Paris and New York.  His draftsmanship and composition is supported by clear, sensitive, and harmonious nuances of color.  The paintings of this noted contemporary French artist have gained him international recognition as the official marine artist of France. Bouyssou's well deserved reputation has grown at a rapid pace, as his works portraying ports, cities and beach scenes are appreciated by discerning collectors.  His paintings are found in notable galleries, private collections and museums throughout Europe and the United States.  Bouyssou represents the purest tradition of French art.  He paints just like the great Impressionists, playing with his colors as a musician does with his musical instruments, obtaining in each of his works a harmony of color and light. 

His paintings are in numerous museums in France; in the Petit Palais in Pads, at Langres, and abroad, and at Casablanca.  Since his first exhibition at the Salon des Artistes Augerons in Paris, he has exhibited in all the major French Salons, as well as in the United States, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, England, Sweden, Taiwan, Japan, Brazil, and Venezuela.  Museums: Honfleur / Rouen / Beyrouth / Montreal / Philadelphia / Art Moderne Paris / Menton / Musee de la Marine Paris / New York Public Library / Bibliotheque National Paris / National Maritime Museum Greenwich, G.B.
