Andre Gisson, was born in New York in 1921 and studied art at the Pratt Institute. He lived in Westport Connecticut for most of his life. However, his paintings reflect his extensive travels and studies in Europe. Throughout his career, Gisson has developed and refined the style and technique of impressionism, with its small broken brushwork and soft, vibrant colors. A versatile artist, he is equally adept at painting landscapes, coastal scenes, still life’s, and portraits. His landscapes depict the French countryside, where he paints every summer, and the region around Lake Mahopac in upstate New York, where he lived for many years.
