Artist. Born in Paris, France, he was a French officiate noted as a poster designer, draughtsman and illustrator. He first gained public notice in the early 1900s, when his drawings began to be published in the press media. During World War I, he drew patriotic posters and postcards, followed by his popular "Children of Montmartre" series to help the needy children in the 1920s. He was put under house arrest under the German occupation of France during World War II and was released when the country was leberated in 1944. He died in Paris, France, at age 67 and many of his postcard series and illustrations, are displayed in galleries world wide.
