Mother and Child in a Landscape

by André Gisson

P.O.A.

Dimensions: (unframed) 24 x 36 inches.
(framed) 32 x 44 inches.
Signature: Signed (lower left)
Medium: Oil on canvas

Throughout his career, Gisson developed and refined the style and technique of impressionism, with its small broken brushwork and soft, vibrant colours.

 

A versatile artist, Gisson is equally adept at painting landscapes, coastal scenes, still lifes, and portraits. His landscapes depict the French countryside, where he would paint every summer, and the region around Lake Mahopac in upstate New York, where he lived for many years.

For this painting Gisson employed his characteristically muted palette, showing off his understanding of subtleties in colour mixing. As is also typical of the artist’s oeuvre, the sky is both bright and grey with a thin layer of cloud – and yet he kept his scenes flooded with a sense of warmth and daylight. Amongst the luscious and thriving fields these two figures, the mother and child, emerge – two vibrant glances of red and blue.

Biography

Impressionist painter, André Gisson, was born in New York in 1921 (with the name Anders Gittelson) and went on to study art at the Pratt Institute. As a graduate, he joined the United States Armed Services – later resuming his career in art upon his return to New York. Gisson continued his studies in Europe, where he came under the influence of the great French Impressionists. As a struggling painter in New York, he made efforts to align himself further with the founders of the Impressionist movement, including the adopted brush name André Gisson.

Throughout his career, Gisson developed and refined the style and technique of impressionism, with its small broken brushwork and soft, vibrant colours. A versatile artist, he is equally adept at painting landscapes, coastal scenes, still lifes, and portraits. His landscapes depict the French countryside, where he would paint every summer, and the region around Lake Mahopac in upstate New York, where he lived for many years.

Gisson has exhibited in leading art galleries throughout the U.S., from New York to Texas, and from Philadelphia to California. Newman Galleries has represented his work since 1957, and his paintings are found in many prominent collections in the Philadelphia area.

Several of Gisson’s paintings have been published and distributed internationally.
