Roger Bissiére began studying at the école des Beaux-Arts de Bordeaux in 1905 under Paul Francois Quinsac. Bissiére studied there until 1909, then in 1910 he went to study under Gabriel Ferrier at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Bissiére mostly painted, starting with a cubist style influenced by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and Pablo Picasso, and later finding his own personal style that leaned into the abstract and using stains of rich color, but he also designed several stained-glass windows for some churches.
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.
