ean 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 theater poster at the Salon de l'Imagerie in 1943. It was then that, at the request of decorator Jules Leleu, he began to create 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 and cardboard makers) and remained very close to Lurçat's designs. With more than 400 original tapestries produced during his lifetime, he is considered a great master of Aubusson Tapestry. In the 1960s, he joined the Sant-Vicens pottery near Perpignan, succeeding Jean Lurçat.
