Louttre B – Chameleon Tree
Louttre B – Marc-Antoine Bissiere
Marc-Antoine Bissiere was born in Paris in 1926, the son of the well known artist Roger Bissiere (1888-1964), who knicknamed him “loutre” (Otter). The two worked for many years side by side. The younger artist adopted the name to distinguish himself from his father and establish his own identity.
Louttre B eschewed the pure abstraction of his father for a more figurative style, which he called “figuration allusive”. He also created sculpture, stained glass windows, and tapestries.
