Bernard Blossac (1917-2001)
Bernard de la Bourdonnaie-Blossac was born in Neuilly-sur-Seine and studied at great length in various art academies including “Collard” and “La Grande Chaumière” and in the atelier of Paul Colin before the fashion designer Robert Piguet discovered him. He soon started publishing drawings in Vogue, L’Officiel, L’Art et la Mode, Harper’s Bazaar and International Textiles. His postwar drawings convey a sense of aristocratic elegance. He is a wonderful painter of mundane Parisian life.
