Biography of Jacques Bouyssou

 Born near Honfleur in 1926, Bouyssou became acquainted at an early age with many respected artists such as Friez, Dufy, Lagar and Leprin who were frequent guests in the family home. They became his mentors and teachers.

           Although Bouyssou studied architecture at the Beaux Arts de Troyes and drawing with the sculptor Janin, it was not until he moved to Paris and studied at the Academie de la Grand Chaumiere in the studio of  Othon Friez that he began to paint.

           Recognition of his talent came rapidly and in 1955 he had his first one man show in London . A year later, the grand dame of Parisian art  dealers, Katia Granoff invited him to exhibit, beginning a long  relationship, during which she sponsored many one man shows.

           In 1987, Bouyssou received one of the supreme compliments of his career when he was named an official painter of the French Navy. One of his paintings is in the permanent collection of Musee de la Marine in Paris . His paintings have been acquired by numerous French and foreign museums  as well as by private collectors around the world.

           As art critic Maybon said of him " He knows how to capture the passing light, how to create an atmosphere."  Superb draftsmanship, supported by clear yet sensitive and harmonious nuances of color, have brought the paintings of this noted contemporary French artist International recognition.           

           Since his first exhibition at the Salon des Artistes Augerons in Paris, he has exhibited in all the major French Salons, as well as in the United States, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, England, Sweden, Taiwan, Japan, Brazil, and Venezuela.
