PAUL-EMILE BECAT (French / 1885-1960)

Paul-Émile Bécat was a master of the drypoint. Bécat was born in Paris, and studied at the Beaux-Arts there under Gabriel Ferrier and François Flameng, winning the Grand Prix de Rome in 1920. Paul-Émile Bécat exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français from 1913. In the 1920s Bécat specialised in portraits of French authors. From 1933, Paul-Émile Bécat concentrated on printmaking, mainly etchings and drypoints. He specialized in lightly-erotic subjects (as for instance our hand-coloured drypoints inspired by the love poems of Paul Verlaine).
