Claude Grosperrin (1939-1977) was a French Impressionist who painted during the middle of the 20th century. His interest in lithography began during his studies at Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in the atelier of Brianchon. There he developed a love of the process, and soon his work caught on in local galleries. After some one-man exhibits in London and New York, Grosperrin received international attention. The city of Paris is known as one of the purchasers of his oils and lithographs. M. Grosperrin holds many of the most esteemed awards for a young artist, including Prix Forman, Medaille d'Or Taverny, and Salon du Jeu de Paume, Versailles.
