Edouard Bisson   (1856 – 1939)

Fanciful ideas and flowing line characterize Bisson’s studies of graceful feminine types.  Distinguished by a certain charm, they agree with Delacroix that “the first quality in a picture is to be a delight for the eyes.”

Born in Paris in 1856, Bisson studied art under one of the most successful of French artists, Jean Leon Gerome.  He exhibited regularly at the Salon of French Artists of which he was a member.  He was awarded Honorable Mentions in 1881 and 1889, a Third Class Medal in 1897, and a Bronze Medal at the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1900.  In 1908 he was made a Knight of the Legion of Honor.

The artist continued to exhibit his works until his death in 1939; however he always saw himself as a painter of the period around 1900; “The Fin de Siecle,” when he developed his own interpretation of feminine beauty.
