Biography

Leo Gausson was a French painter, sculptor and designer. His artistic training began in the workshop of Eugène Froment, a wood engraver. It was not until 1883 that Gausson took up painting.

While working in Froment's workshop Gausson met Emile-Gustave Péduzzi and Maximilien Luce. By 1886 all three had begun to experiment with various painting techniques, such as stippled brushwork and divided colour. Much of their inspiration stemmed from the works of Seurat, Paul Signac and Camille and Lucien Pissarro.

In 1886 Gausson made his debut at the Salon as a sculptor. A year later in 1887 Gausson first showed his paintings at the Salon des Artistes Indépendants. He continued to exhibit his paintings annually at the Salon.
