* Louis Icart (1888-1950)

: we know of this artist very many etchings in colors representing especially elegant, inspired by Pierre Louys and Spanish, from the books of Mérimée. He also illustrated "The ingenuous libertine" by Colette, the two "Faust" by Goethe. (cf Bénézit)

Trained in printmaking, he presented his original works at the Salon des humoristes: his portraits of women, "Parisians", began to seduce the public; he is compared to Paul-César Helleu and Manuel Robbe. During the Great War, he was an airplane pilot, went on several air missions but never stopped drawing. In 1920, he exhibited at the Simonson gallery (Paris), then, in 1922, in New York, Belmaison gallery, more than thirty paintings expressing an art deco style. Following this exhibition, his engravings will experience some success in America until 1932. His work includes more than 500 engravings. He also participated in the illustration of around thirty works, including a good number of erotic ones.

Artist very well on Artprice.
