Biography from Papillon Gallery
=Bissière's artistic talents were evident as a child, but his father did not approve and wanted him to pursue a law career. At nineteen Bissière rebelled, traveling in Algiers. He eventually studied at L'École des Beaux-Arts, Bordeaux and then at L'École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris. As part of his artistic practice, Bissière wrote reviews of contemporary art for Parisian newspapers. In 1919, Léonce Rosenberg commissioned him to write the first monograph on Georges Braque's work.
Around 1910 or 1911, Bissière began showing in the Parisian Salons. His first Salon exhibition was the Salon des Artistes Français. Other Salon exhibitions include the Salon d'Automne, Salon des Tuileries, and Salon des Artistes Indépendants. In addition to these exhibitions, Bissière exhibited work at the Société des Amateurs d'Art, Exposition Universelle, Petit -Palais des Maîtres d'Art Indépendant 1895-1937, Salon de Mai, Biennale de Venise, Biennale de Sao Paulo, and Documenta de Kassel.
Solo exhibitions include the Galerie Berthe Weil, Galerie Druet, and Galerie Drouin. The Musée National d'Art Moderne de Paris exhibited a retrospective of Bissière's work. The exhibition traveled to museums in Germany, The Netherlands, and Switzerland. Subsequent exhibitions include Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and Musée de l'Abbaye Sainte-Croix des Sables-d'Olonne.
Bissière's work is part of the permanent collections of numerous museums including, Agen, Amsterdam, Bordeaux, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Saint-Étienne, and Zurich. Paris art museums that own his work include the Musée Nationale d'Art Moderne and Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville.
Bissière died on December 2, 1964 in Boissiérettes, Lot, France.
