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

Georges Cheyssial was born on December 9, 1907 in Paris, France.  He was a painter and designer of figures, genre scenes, and wall decorations.  Cheyssial was a pupil of one of the Laurens brothers (probably Paul Albert) at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris.  He won the Prix de Rome in 1932, and studied at the Villa Medici from 1932 to 1937.

Cheyssial exhibited in Paris, notably at the Salon des Artistes Français and the Salon d’Automne, winning numerous distinctions, prizes and medals.  He was made an Officer of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, and of the Légion d’Honneur.  In addition, Cheyssial received numerous commissions for decorative works in colleges and universities and other public buildings, including the Palais de la Découverte in Paris (1937), the church of Notre Dame du Calvaire in Chantillon-sous-Bagneux, Orly parish church (1947), the theatre and college at Niort (1960) and faculty buildings at Orsay (1967).

Cheyssial was president and honorary president of the Taylor Foundation and became a member of the Institut de France in 1958.  He was appointed curator of the J.-J. Henner Museum in 1973.

Cheyssial died on April 2, 1997 in Paris.

His auction records date back to June 1986 in Paris.  Cheyssial is listed in the Benezit Dictionary of Artists.
