• Marie Lucie Nessi-Valtat


    Art Brokerage: Marie Lucie Nessi-Valtat French Artist: b. 1910-1992. Marie Lucie Nessi, born in Paris in 1910, was the elder of two children from the marriage of André Nessi, a Swiss citizen from Locarno, and Hélène Koehne, born in Seesen in the Harz mountains of Germany. When she had completed high school, Marie Lucie, then 16 years old, convinced her parents to allow her to attend drawing classes. After nearly two years of studying plaster antiquities, Marie Lucie completed her training in the ateliers of Billoul and André Lhote, at the Académie de La Grande Chaumière and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. With her fellow students she spent many evenings in the company of Jacques Hélion, Kisling or Foujita, whom they used to meet in the cafés of Montparnasse. Up till the declaration of war in 1939, Marie-Lucie and Jean used to take their summer holidays in an old second-hand Amilcar, touring most of the countries of Europe. MarieLucie brought back numerous watercolours from these trips. From 1958, thanks to the assistance of her mother-in-law Suzanne Valtat, who remained firmly attached to her, Nessi abandoned ceramics and at last gave herself entirely to painting. Listings wanted.
