About the Artist:
Francis Jourdain was born in France in 1876 to the architect, and founder of the Salon d'Automne, Frantz Jourdain. His earliest convictions were influenced by the company his parents kept, which included Émile Zola, Alphonse Daudet, and Alexandre Charpentier. Jourdain found these friends progenitors of a stuffy and ultimately false, liberality, and set about to supplant it with his own.
Jourdain started as a painter. He became an early proponent of the Art Nouveau style, exhibiting a celebrated panel at the 1900 Exposition Universelle in Paris, and serving as a decorator at the Villa Majorelle in Nancy.
