life drawings by pierre lissac One of the original full pages from La Vie Parisienne This one is titled Effets et Poses, it tells the story of a model reporting for work, the artist at work with the model and the final question, will the artwork be exhibited successfully at the Salon, or consigned to a street fair.

The chapters are scans of individual drawings extracted from full page combinations of drawings published in the magazine. life drawings by pierre lissac The drawings are enlarged so the reader can appreciate the detail and elegant line of Pierre Lissac. All of the drawings incorporate the humor he was famous for. The last section is a humorous look at the Salon des Artistes. The Petite Model is posing for various masters in their typical poses. I have added an appendix with copies of typical works of the artists that Pierre Lissac is spoofing and comparing the paintings to Lissac's drawings. The one illustrated here should be well known to everyone. The model poses in a tub so that Paul Chabas can make another of his women in a pool paintings, this one of course is September Morn. life drawings by pierre lissac
