Pierre Girieud was still an unknown artist, when a few of his
satirical topical drawings
were published in various newspapers.
Later on, at the request of his friends literary men, he illustrates Romance,
poetries or biographies.These illustrations of works will be welcomed because they contribute to combining two arts (1).
During an investigation carried out in 1933, he indicates the pleasure he had in imagining these illustrations (2).
He also contributes to the production of tourist guides, almanacs or illustrations.
n particular, in 1923, by request of french national museum, he created for a french
art exhibition in Stockholm, an advertissement in order to attract visitors.
This advertissement printed by Mourlot was a success and the museum decided to
continue the experience with future artistic manifestations.(informations issued from the site Affiches Mourlot)
