Pierre Brissaud was a talented French artist, trained atthe École des Beaux-Arts and then the Atelier Fernand Cormon in Montmartre, Paris. His work suited the fashionable magazines of the time and he was engaged to produce illustrations for the likes of ‘Vogue Magazine’, including cover art in the pre WWI years. Between the wars he was very prolific in magazine & book illustration, including ‘Vanity Fair’ and ‘House & Garden’. After WWII, he was a well respected traditional illustrator, and commissioned by quality publishers such as The Limited Edition Club. This series of watercolours date to the 1950’s, probably produced for some as-yet untraced book.
