Lucienne Bisson (1880–1939) was a French artist.

Bisson was born in Paris. She was the illegitimate daughter of Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841–1919)[1] and Frédérique Vallet-Bisson, a French painter who was leading the Société Féminine des Artistes.[2][nb 1]

Lucienne Bisson exhibited her works in many French Salons, among them the Salon des Indépendants.[2] She is famous for her Paris city views, beautiful landscapes and colorful still lifes.[citation needed] For instance, Bisson made a painting that captured the "heavy atmosphere" on a cloudy Paris street in 1920s.[1]
