Loïc Dubigeon, born on April 27, 1934, in Nantes, France, was a celebrated French illustrator, painter, and stylist whose works adorned the illustrious world of Hermès. Despite coming from a family of shipowners and originally leaning towards architecture, Dubigeon found his artistic voice in various other forms of creative expression.
He started gaining recognition after receiving the Biennale de Paris award in 1963, and his renown expanded with his diverse and vibrant designs for Hermès scarves, as well as his illustrious paintings and illustrations. His artworks brilliantly reflected his unique artistic vision and inventive design approach, each piece telling a story, igniting imaginations, and transporting the observer into the depicted world.
Dubigeon’s artistic versatility and talent shone in his remarkable range of Hermès scarf designs. Some of his notable works include:
And many more that contributed to his enduring legacy in the world of Hermès.
Dubigeon resided in the commune of Derchigny, in the Domaine de Wargemont, a residence once inhabited by the famed Pierre-Auguste Renoir in the late 19th century. His paintings and lithographs were frequently exhibited, especially at the Galerie d’Ophir in Eure.
The Dieppe Museum owns four of Dubigeon’s works, including “Car Ferry” and “Falaise à Berneval,” both oil on canvas, and two watercolor maquettes used to create postage stamps. His artworks are occasionally posthumously sold at the renowned Drouot auction house in Paris.
Sadly, the world lost this visionary artist on January 27, 2001, in Hennebont. Yet, Loïc Dubigeon‘s legacy endures in his paintings, illustrations, and of course, his timeless designs for Hermès, each piece continuing to captivate and inspire generations of art and fashion enthusiasts.
