In 1904 the French painter Bissiére was a student at the Algiers Ecole des Beaux-Arts, and moved to Paris in 1910 where he briefly attended Gabriel Ferrier's studio at the Ecole Nationale de Beaux Arts. In 1912, he became a journalist and, in 1914, exhibited the design for a fresco of Daphnis et Chloe at the Salon des Indépendants. From 1919 onwards, he was a regular participant in these Paris exhibitions. In 1921, he held his first one-man show at the Paul Rosenberg Gallery and published various articles in periodicals. At this stage, his work was especially influenced by that of Braque and Picasso. In 1935, he became involved with the Mural Art movement, directing students in the execution of frescoes for the Air and Railway pavilions at the Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne in 1937 in Paris. In 1947, he held his most important exhibition at the René Drouin gallery and, at the end of the 50s, he began painting in oils again as well as designing stained glass for the transepts of Metz Cathedral (1960-61). Bissiére received an honourable mention in representing France at the 1964 Venice Biennale. First prize, however, was awarded to Robert Rauschenberg and marked the definitive triumph of New York over the Paris School.
