PAUL-EMILE BECAT 1885-1960

French painter, printmaker and engraver, Becat was awarded first prize in the Prix de Rome in 1920. He was a student of Gabriel Ferrier and François Flameng and exhibited at the Salon de Paris in 1913. Returning from his travels to the Congo, Gabon, and the Sudan, he specialised from 1933 in the technique of drypoint in his erotic works, which often reflect the African or Eastern influence. Today he is best known for his portraits of French writers, and for his erotic works.
