Lesaout, Emile

Lesaout was born in Paris in 1926.  He studied in a private art academy in Montparnasse, and later at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris, where he presently maintains his studio.

He is represented in collections in Switzerland, England, France, Canada and the United States.  His early works were mostly landscapes in the traditional academic manner, but he soon developed a particular style, which especially lends itself to vivid impressions of the Parisian streets.
