This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Comfortable using an assortment of mediums, Brisgand executed some very attractive portraits. He was very facile with the use of oils, crayon and pastel. He resided in France throughout his lifetime, and enjoyed a long and prosperous career as an artist.

Early in his career he exhibited at the Salon des Artists, 1910 (Reverie), 1911(Amoroso), 1913 (Extase), 1914 (Salome), drawings that featured youthful female models in seductive reclining poses.

He was commissioned to produce a portrait of Pierre Bartholomew Gheusi in 1927.  The three quarter length image is a very fashionable portrayal of a male figure.  It is reminiscent of the dashing manor of Giovanni Boldini (1842-1931)

Some examples of landscape work by this artist also exist, however, he became most noted for his stylish portraits of women.  He excelled in the depiction of the nude figure.  His works are often known by his emphasis on good draughtmanship, incorporating the slender graceful portrayal of fingers and hands.

Brisgand was the subject of a capricious film interview that shows him sketching youthful ballerinas as they pose in certain attitudes.  The mustachioed Parisian artist wears a suit hat and bow tie as he observes his models dancing in formal ballet attire. (Eves Film Review Issue #475).   Also a capable illustrator, his work was featured in the French publication Fantasio.  In 1929 his works were published under the title La Plastique Feminine, Gustave Brisgand Illustrateur, by Alben Michel.
