He attended the Academy of Fine Arts of Le Havre and then that of Paris, where he went in 1901. After the First World War he made trips to Provence, Sicily and Morocco, and stayed in various cities in France. In 1952 he obtained the International Prize for painting at the Venice Biennale.
In the incredibly stimulating artistic environment of the Paris of those years he approached two elderly patriarchs of impressionism like Monet and Pissarro, but finally in 1905 the scandal of the Fauves revealed to him a modern and congenial painting, especially in Matisse.
Since then, its elegantly decorative, almost guilloche, initials successfully established itself in a very vast production, from painting to graphics, from ceramics to fabrics, from illustrations to scenographies.
