Artist Biography:

Louis Justin Laurent Icart was born in Toulouse in 1888 and died in Paris in 1950.  He lived in New York City in the 1920s, where he became known for his Art-Deco color etchings of glamourous women.

He was first son of Jean and Elisabeth Icart and was officially named Louis Justin Laurent Icart.  The use of his initials L.I. would be sufficient in this household. Therefore, from the moment of his birth he was dubbed ‘Helli’.  The Icart family lived modestly in a small brick home on rue Traversière-de-la-balance, in the culturally rich Southern French city of Toulouse, which was the home of many prominent writers and artists, the most famous being Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec.
