Artist Bio

Roger Bissiére was an established painter in the School of Paris from the second decade of the twentieth century onward. A friend of Georges Braque (1882-1963), he became a proponent of cubism.

Additional Information

Abstract yellow, blue, black, and pink.

After the Second World War, Bissiére’s painting evolved into an abstract style in the orbit of Art Informel and Tachisme that fused expressive fauve-like color with a loosened cubist structure, as can be seen in his color lithograph, October.
