SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- Franklin Bowles Galleries presents an important collection of new works by Pierre Marie Brisson. The idea for the show came about when André Liatard, the curator of the Musée Faure in Aix-les-Bains, France, asked Pierre Marie to select 20 pieces from the Museum’s permanent collection and do his own interpretation of them. The Musée Faure is considered to have one of the most important collections of Impressionist works outside of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. The museum is the former home of Doctor Jean Faure (1862–1942), who donated his private collection of primarily 19th and 20th century French artists to create the museum. The collection includes an amazing group of Rodin sculptures and Impressionist paintings, most of which seems to concentrate on the female form. Pierre Marie has always been fascinated with the human body and the female form, so Dr. Faure’s collection provided abundant choices for him!

Artists have always been inspired by the great artists who came before them and Pierre Marie loved the process of interpreting his favorite works from the collection. The works he produced display his usual mastery of his medium but are interesting in the range of new subject matter depicted. The works were shown at the Musée Faure from April 16 to June 20, 2010 and will be exhibited in our New York and San Francisco Galleries October 2010.

Pierre Marie Brisson was born in Orléans, France on June 11, 1955. He now lives and works amongst the vineyards of the Rhône Valley in the south of France. He has been showing his art at Franklin Bowles Galleries for over 20 years and he continues to exhibit regularly in museums and galleries in France, Germany, Sweden, Japan, and Canada.
