Born December 3, 1805 in the town of flushing in Holland in the French family. In his youth, along with Lord Byron fought in the war for Greek independence. In the 1840-1850-ies worked as a war artist in the "London illustrated news". In the early 1860-ies, he settled in Paris and the rest of his life was devoted to sketching everything that he saw around him.

Like his contemporary and friend honoré Daumier, GIS worked from memory and very quickly. He created several thousand drawings, tinted with watercolors. Unlike Daumier, GIS with equal impartiality watched the morals of all strata of Parisian society. Among the subjects of his works, and elegant public in theatres, boulevards, in the Bois de Boulogne, and the scenes in cabarets, bistros and public houses. Best of all, the artist managed images of women; he is the rival Goya, whose prints and drawings, obviously, had a profound influence on creativity. Gisu was subservient to the whole spectrum of interpretations of the image of women — from casual elegance, and later attracted Edouard Manet, to the outrageous in the spirit of Toulouse Lautrec or the early Georges Rouault. Of the contemporaries most close to him Gavarnie, though the latter was rarely able to achieve perfection, finesse or sharpness of his drawings.

Already in 1863 creativity bundle branch block was opened by Charles Baudelaire; he published in the Figaro a series of articles called the Poet of modern life, that was the beginning of his activities as a critic of art. The modesty of the artist, his commitment to anonymity was incredibly high: he has never exhibited his work and did not sign them, and also insisted on the fact that Baudelaire called only the initials of his name. GIS died in Paris on 13 March 1892.

An outstanding collection gathered by Baudelaire, has several hundred drawings of his and now belongs to the Paris Museum Carnavalet.
