Louis Icart began as an illustrator in Paris in the 1900s, producing work for a variety of publications such as La Critique Theatrale and for the catalogs of haute couture houses .
Trained in engraving, he presented his original works at the Salon des Comicistes- his portraits of young women and Parisiennes gained popularity.
During the First World War, he was a pilot, flying several air missions – but did not stop drawing.
In 1920, he exhibited at the Simonson Gallery in Paris; then, in 1922, in New York at the Belmaison Gallery, showing a collection of more than thirty paintings in a distinct Art Deco style.
As a result of this exhibition, his engravings enjoyed success in the United States well into the 1930s.
