"Souk To The Poets - Pierre Lissac (1878 - 1955)"
Dimensions with frame: 69.5 x 60 cm Small gaps in the frame A man dressed in a djellabah of white wool, the hood raised on his head. Sitting as a rider on his donkey, wand in hand to suck his mount if it drags a bit, he seems ready to shout with a loud voice "balek, balek" to clear the passage. To his left, the storefront of a shop displays his pottery. A typical scene of a Moroccan derb, probably the souk of Rabat, where Pierre Lissac lived a few years. Born in Limoges on March 20, 1878, Pierre Lissac studied at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts and at the Académie Julian. He began his career as an illustrator and cartoonist, signing his drawings of the pseudonym Pierlis, or Kiss. He collaborated in numerous humorous and non-humorous magazines such as La Vie Parisienne (exceptional longevity magazine, founded in 1863 and published until 1970, in which Colette published his first novel in 1907), Le Rire (a newspaper founded in 1894 at the time of the Dreyfus affair) and also Fantasio (a magazine launched in 1905, in association with Le Rire, with which it merged in 1937), l'Illustration (a newspaper which appeared from 1843 to 1944, The readership of enlightened bourgeois, proposing a neutral treatment of politics and a highly developed cultural part where the image is preponderant) Le Matin (published from 1883 to 1944). As an illustrator, he collaborated, between 1920 and 1948, in the edition of thirty works such as Cyrano de Bergerac, L'Aiglon d'Edmond Rostand; The Evil of François Mauriac; Les Contes du Lundi, by Alphonse Daudet; Luce and Colas learn the History of France; Bonsoâr môssié by François Fratellini and Les Chansons de Bilitis by Pierre Louÿs and many others.
