Louis Icart

Louis IcartLouis Icart, a self taught artist, is the master of “boudoir art”. It was referred to as “boudoir art” because during the 1920’s to 40’s, most collectors felt that it was a little too risqué to display anywhere other than the bedroom. His art is a tribute to the beauty and gracefulness of the female form.

Born in France in 1888, Icart had a love for the theater and had hoped to become an actor. Luckily for us, his life took him in a different direction. He had his first experience with art in 1907, hand coloring French beauties for a postcard company. Later on, he took a position as a fashion illustrator.
