Jean Picart Le Doux (1902-1982)
Son of the painter Charles Picart Le Doux, the self-taught Jean Picart Le Doux began in bookbinding and publishing, then in graphic arts (posters and magazine covers). He won the Grand Prix for the theater poster at the Salon de l'Imagerie in 1943. It was then that, at the request of the decorator Jules Leleu, he began to execute tapestry cartoons for the decoration of the liner La Marseillaise. From the same generation as Lurçat, he became vice-president of the APCT (Association of tapestry painters-cartonniers) and remained very close to Lurçat's ideas. With more than 400 original tapestries produced during his lifetime, he is considered a grand master of Aubusson tapestry. In the 1960s, he joined the pottery of Sant-Vicens near Perpignan, succeeding Jean Lurçat.
