Jean-Pierre Cassigneul is best known for his striking compositions of fashionable women in floral hats. Using vibrant colour and smoky contour, his paintings evoke both the avant-garde graphic sensibilities of Les Nabis, particularly Pierre Bonnard and Edouard Vuillard, as well as the radical colour palette and sensuous portraiture of Kees van Dongen.
