Guy Dessapt was born in 1938 in Le Creusot in France. In 1955 he was enrolled in Atleier Deval to study paintings and decorative arts, where he learned about the style of the French Impressionist. After a travel to Italy, he returned to France to settle in Aries 1960 and was inspired by a grand spectacle with sunlight there. He started painting favorite subject from the streets or parks in New York as well as towns and countryside in Europe, which later became his trademark representation. It seems that his works evoke nostalgic feeling for belle epoque .The technique of pointillism he has developed in his own way creates a rich matiere and brilliant sense of color. Sometimes his paintings are compared to figuratively "sparkling jewel box ". Regarded as one of the successors of the great French Impressionists such as Monet or Renoir, he can be counted among "Modern Impressionists" and his artworks are highly prized by art connoisseurs worldwide. Now he lives and works in Ille-de-France with his wife and children. He visits Japan annually for his one-man show held at the art galleries at the major department stores across Japan and his artworks boast tremendous popularity with collectors. This time we hold his solo-exhibition featuring an outstanding selection of works depicting the town scenes and landscapes in Paris, Venice and New York. We would be delighted to welcome you to this exhibition.
