Victor Guerrier (Lyon 1893-1968) started out as an illustrator. He soon turned over another leaf and focused on working as a painter in Paris. He depicted the everyday life of the  Parisian high-society, during the Interbellum. Guerrier found great sources of inspiration in painters such as Manet and Toulouse-Lautrec. The cafés, the posh nightclubs, the attire; he showed the fine fleur of Paris in all its glamour and beauty. The paintings have a certain directness to them as the subjects tend to look straight at the viewer. They impart the viewer in their story. Guerrier painted with a varied and bright colorite and was not afraid of using impasto in his work.
