Meet the Author

Jacques Villon was born in 1875, and began his career as a printmaker and illustrator in the mid-1890s. He had success as a humorous illustrator for Parisian newspapers, but by the late-1890s was also becoming a serious print-maker. He exhibited his prints for the first time in 1901 at the Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts, and was an organizer in 1903 of the first Salon d'Automne. He died in 1963 after a long career as a print-maker and painter.
