Original oil on board by Modern French artist and Illustrator Pierre Grisot.
A frothy little number from one of the better known French commercial painters and illustrators of the 1950s and 60s. The great Jean-Gabriel Domergue had created a market for glamour girls in fine art – indeed he is said to have invented the Pin-up – and Grisot was prominent in the next generation that happily filled that market. He painted exaggerated mademoiselles with improbably pert noses and fashion illustration for Dior marketing campaigns. These two rather elegant fashionistas of the 1950s are from the more sophisticated end of Grisot’s output.
