Pierre Brissaud (1885- 1964) was a French illustrator, painter, and a prominent figure of French Art Deco.
He created illustrations for publications Les Feuillets d’Art, La Gazette du Bon Ton, Fortune, House & Garden, Vanity Fair, and Vogue.
Many of his illustrations are realistic leisure scenes of the well-to-do.
From the mid-1920 to the early 1930’s, Pierre Brissaud was known for his stencil prints meant for magazine covers and advertising.
Not only did Brissaud created prints and posters for fashion houses, but he also did book illustrations including Manon Lescaut, Two Gentlemen of Verona, and Madame Bovary.
It is through his creative artistry that the reflections of elegance of days gone by are preserved.
