Madeline West Antiques Artwork

8. Andre Gisson, (1921 – 2003)
Oil on canvas. Circa 19th Century
Gisson’s real name was Anders Gittelson. Born in 1921 in Brooklyn, he graduated from
the Pratt Institute and was a Captain in the Army during World War II. To enhance his
reputation, he claimed to be French and adopted the brush name of André Gisson.  He also professed to have been born in 1910 rather than his true birth date of 1921, to be more closely aligned with the founders of the Impressionist movement.

His work is in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution and the Triton Museum of Art, in North Carolina. Among his private collectors were President Lyndon B. Johnson and
W. Somerset Maugham.
