Robert PichonRobert Pichon. Ateliers de Dessin et Lithographie

It is surprisingly that we do not know much more about Robert Pichon and his workshop, all we known is that he was specialized in graphic design for advertising, active in the years 1910-1940, and he was working for the Lorilleux printing house for which he realized many models in the 1920/1930. Pichon also worked frequently for the magazine Caractère and mainly for special Christmas issues.

Most of his know work are commercial designs for perfume, soaps, cigarettes, chocolate. His work was influenced by Fauvist colour and Cubist composition. Subject matter ranges from the figurative, including flora, fauna, and Classical mythology, to abstract geometric motifs.
Young women in dresses and themes of the Art Deco period, are quite rare. These designs are strongly influenced by contemporary illustrators like  George Barbier (1882-1932),  Georges Lepape (1887-1971) and Pierre Brissaud (1885 – 1964).
