Jean-Pierre Cassigneul is a contemporary French painter known for his serene portraits of women that recall the French Post-Impressionist avant-garde era, such as this exemplary piece.

The attraction of Cassigneul’s art lies in his ability to transport the viewer to an idyllic world, evoking a sense of nostalgia. His beautiful compositions of striking elegant women are similar in the tradition of the early 20th century French Nabis artists like Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, through his use of flat colours and compressed spaces to portray everyday people and objects. His work is also greatly influenced by the expressionist painter, Kees van Dongen, as seen most in the elongated and contoured female forms imbued with vibrant, expressive colours. In Cassigneul’s enigmatic imagery, the figures are frozen in time. His subjects remain lost in contemplation, inviting the viewer into the serenity of their world.

Born in Paris in 1935, Jean-Pierre Cassigneul decided at early age to pursue multiple disciplines, and became extremely proficient as a painter, lithographer, engraver, illustrator, and muralist. At the age of 17, Jean-Pierre Cassigneul held his first solo exhibition in Paris. Two years later, he entered the Académie Charpentier and studied under Jean Souverbie, a professor at the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris. He passed his entrance examination a year later and enrolled at the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris. From 1956 until 1960, Jean-Pierre Cassigneul was instructed by Chapelain-Midy. During this period, he held exhibitions in Paris and other cities. He had a contract with the Gallery Bellechasse in Paris for several years after his first exhibition at the gallery in 1965.

 

Since then, his work has been exhibited extensively throughout Europe, Japan and the United States, including shows at the Galerie Tivey Faucon and Galerie Bellechase, Paris; Gallery Tamenaga, Japan and Wally Findlay Gallery, New York. Cassigneul has also illustrated several books, including Le Tour de Malheur by Joseph Kessel.

 

Jean-Pierre Cassigneul went on to exhibit in various group exhibitions, including the Salon d’ Automne in Paris, where he was member, the Salon de la Jeune Peinture, and Meubles Tableaux (Furniture-Paintings), an exhibition held in 1977 at the Centre Beau Bourg. In this, he showed a piece of occasional furniture in the Louis XIV manner, the doors and sides of which, were decorated with female figures.
