Marie Paulette Lagosse (1921-1996)

Marie Paulette Lagosse was an artist who worked in Paris in the middle of the 20th century. After the Second World War, she worked as an illustrator for a number of important Parisian magazines, including L’Equipe, Paris-Presse, and the Journal de Paris.

Lagosse frequented aristocratic circles in post-war Paris and was in demand as a painter of pet portraits, receiving commissions from the Princess Amédée de Broglie, Nathalie de Noailles, the Prince Murat, and many others. She also worked for a number of haut-couture houses, including Hermès and Bianchini-Ferier, where she designed high style fabrics and scarves.

Lagosse illustrated a number of books, and was herself the subject of a monograph by Arsène Soreil, published by the Musée Gaumais in Virton, Belgium, in 1949.
