  • Mid Century Modern Painting - Ballet Dancer - Pierre Grisot
    By Pierre Grisot
    Located in Casteren, Noord-Brabant
    A lovely vintage painting of a ballet dancer, made by the French artist Pierre Grisot. Oil painting on hardboard, framed in a classic frame. Dimensions frame: 47 x 42 cm Dimensions painting: 25 x 20 cm Free shipping Pierre Gristot. France, 1911-1995 Grisot was born in Paris, he was a French post-Impressionist artist who was a member of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. Grisot painted in a light-hearted style that was all his own. Whether he was painting fashionable ladies of the day, nudes or flowers, his work was always full of colour and life and was very different from the styles of his contemporary painters. His paintings now serve as vintage reminders of the style of the mid 20th Century. One of the most enduring features of Grisot's work was his brilliant use of color and his evocative renditions of the female visage. Grisot was born in 1911 in Paris. Grisot worked as an engineer but gave up this career and moved to Paris, where he studied painting for a year at the Ecole des Arts Décoratifs. After this he studied at the prestigious Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, where he obtained his diploma as a drawing teacher. Grisot taught drawing and painting for many years, but he also gave up this work to be able to paint freely. The first exhibition of Grisot's paintings took place in Paris in 1942. In 1951 he received a prize for engraving and in 1952 the French government awarded him a scholarship for a stay of several months in Tunisia. At that time the museum of Besançon acquired two of his works. Grisot took part in many exhibitions of paintings in Paris, especially in the Salons des Independants and with the group of "The Paris School", where he exhibited together with artists such as Vlaminck, Raoul Dufy and Villon. He produced an engaging oeuvre that depicts a colorful and light-hearted world of young dancing girls, nude models, coquettes and ladies of leisure...
