Artist biography

View full artist profile

Louis Icart arrived in Paris in 1907 and learned engraving techniques in the postcard factory where he worked. Icart is known for his numerous colour etchings of elegant, sometimes erotic, figures, inspired by Pierre Louÿs and the Spanish women in the books of Mérimée. He also illustrated Colette's L'Ingénue Libertine and Goethe's two Faust. His prints were widely distributed in the USA between 1920 and 1940. In contrast, his painting shows an Impressionist tendency. He had a solo exhibition in Paris in 1912, and in Brussels the following year. He was named Chevalier of the Légion d'Honneur in 1927.
