/// Biography of André GISSON (1928-2003) ///
Anders GITTELSON said André Gisson (1921 - July 28, 2003) was an American impressionist painter. He graduated from the Pratt Institute in New York and was a captain in the army during World War II.
Gisson's birth name was Anders Gittelson. Raised in poverty, he earned an art degree from the Pratt Institute. Gisson struggled to enter the art market with his Impressionist paintings as an American. He moved to France and legally changed his name to André Gisson. After serving as a captain in the United States Army during World War II, he continued his travels and artistic studies across Europe and Asia. A prolific painter, Gisson created hundreds of paintings throughout his life. Gisson's paintings can be found in the Smithsonian and the Triton Museum of Art. Gisson lived and worked in Westport, Connecticut for the last twenty-five years of his life. He died in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2003. (Source Wikipedia)
