André Jacquemin Epinal (Vosges) (1904) - Paris (1992) André Jacquemin began drawing early in life and decided to commit himself seriously to becoming an artist after a leg injury left him bedridden during a month and a half when he drew constantly. He studied the technique of etching at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. In 1925, he formed the Society of Young Contemporary Engravers with Yves Alix, Amédée de la Patellière and Jacques Villon. He was awarded the National arts prize in 1936, given for the first time to an etcher. In 1937 he presented at the Venice Biennale and a year later he began a long career as a gifted illustrator and completed a total of 31 books written by famous contemporary writers. In 1981 he was elected member of the French Academy of Beaux Arts. His works include landscapes, animals, portraits and nudes.
