Jeanne Selmersheim-Desgranges Biography

View full artist profile

Jeanne Selmersheim-Desgranges (1877–1958) was a French neo-impressionist painter who used the art technique of pointillism with her main themes of flowers and gardens. Her painting, Garden at La Lune, Saint-Tropez (1909), shows her signature use of “high-key colors and block-like strokes.”
Some of her oil on canvas works are Garden at La Hune, Saint Tropez (1909), The Flowers, In the Garden (1909), Table blanche, vue sur Saint-Tropez (c. 1930), The Garden, Afternoon Tea, Flowers in the Window, and Bouquet of Flowers.

Selmersheim-Desgranges, raised in a family of artists and architects, became an art student of Paul Signac and later, in 1910, his companion. At the time, Signac was married to Bertha (Robles), and Selmersheim-Desgranges was married to Pierre Desgrange with whom she had three children. In September 1912, Signac and Selmersheim-Desgranges moved to a rented villa in Cap d’Antibes, France and in October 1912 she gave birth to their daughter Ginnette Laurie Anaiis.

In July 1961, Selmersheim-Desgrange’s painting, The Flowers, was one of 57 modern art paintings stolen from the Annonciade Museum of Modern Art in Saint-Tropez, France
