The Estate of Marguerite Louppe and Maurice Brianchon is dedicated to the stewardship of the work and legacies of the two artists, who were married from 1934 to 1979.

Maurice Brianchon (1899–1979) is considered one of the most respected painters of his generation. Best known for his depictions of the theatre and Parisian life, Brianchon expertly blended classical subjects with abstract patterns. With saturated colors, flattened perspective, and lively subjects, his work paid homage to the traditions of French painting and innovations of Post-Impressionist movements. He garnered considerable recognition during his lifetime and became prolific as a professor of art and designer of theatre sets and costumes. Retrospectives of his work were held at Musée des Art Décoratifs at the Louvre in 1951 and at the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Neuchatel in 1962.


Olivier Daulte, author of Brianchon's catalogue raisonné and the recognized expert on Brianchon, hosts a comprehensive website of information on the artist, which can be found here.

Over the course of her career, Marguerite Louppe (1902–1988) balanced avant-garde abstraction with more traditional figuration. While working in Paris in the 1930s and 1940s, Louppe's still lifes and interior scenes drew from the subjectivity and saturated hues of Post-Impressionism. This early style was very successful, and in 1936 the French state acquired a painting, which is now held by the Centre Pompidou. Increasingly, however, Louppe’s work synthesized the mathematical tendencies of Purism and Cubism, becoming more planar and geometric. When Louppe and Brianchon purchased their country home Truffieres in the 1950s, Louppe had a dedicated studio space for the first time in her career. By the 1960s, her landscapes utilized both a Diebenkorn-like abstraction and the mastery of color seen in her earlier work.
