“Life is extremely beautiful”, is a quote by Grégoire. That positive message is also what comes shinning though this fantastic painting. It is painted in a very confident way with strong bright colors, showing the craftsmanship of a natural born artist. Who later in his life, after he was financially independent, started an art school just out of passion for art and his students.
The painting remind a lot of the work of Jean-Gabriel Domergue, who also painted many Parisian woman and was active in the same period as Grégoire.

Gregoire mainly depicted very naturalistic landscape and river scenes, or reclining nudes and pin-up models. His well-known motto; “Life is extremely beautiful”, can be found back in both his landscapes, as well as in his ‘model’ paintings. As Gregroire, like a photographer, would always await the very best moment to optimally capture his subject.

Next to being a painter he was also a very successful inventor. He invented Teflon or “Non Stick Cooking”, as used in the well-known TEFAL cookware. After he was financially independent due to that success, he would only focus on painting and thatching at his very own painting academy.
