Émile Aloïs Lucien Bressler

Genf, 1886 — 1966

Henri Aloïs Lucien Bressler (1886, Geneva – 1966) first worked in his father’s, François Joseph Bernard Eugène, engraving business before continuing his education at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Geneva. Together with Maurice Barraud, he founded the Falot group of artists. From 1913 to 1914, Bressler stayed in Paris, where he was inspired by the late Impressionists and Symbolists. His main works include figurative compositions of simple country life and depictions of everyday peasant life. In the last years of his work, he primarily painted pure landscapes with a melancholic aura. In addition to painting, Bressler worked as a graphic artist and illustrator.
