Jean-Gabriel Domerque (1889 – 1962) was a French painter born in Bordeaux. He used to work in gouache, pastel, ink and watercolor, and his subjects included flowers, nudes, landscapes, and portraits. At the beginning of his career, Domerque was known for his landscape paintings, but from the 1920s onwards, he decided to be the painter of the "Parisian lady" - many of his paintings being nudes. Domerque later claimed to be "the inventor of the pin-up". It’s true that the artist had invented a new type of woman: elegant, airy, thin, with a neck that looks like that of a swan and with wide seductive eyes which stare upon the world with desire. Domerque learnt not to discount anything that could inspire someone to see things in a way they never did before, or anything that could be used to provoke an unforgettable feeling, or to create and tell a wonderful story. In 1906, at the young age of 17, he exhibited at the French Artists Exhibition (the Salon Des Artistes Francais). He was greatly inspired by patterns, textures and multi-cultural colors. He used this inspiration to express an original thought, a unique idea, and an individual expression. In 1911, he won the second prize of the Prix de Rome and in 1920 won the gold medal award. In the same year, he also designed clothes for the couturier Paul Poiret. He enjoyed new challenges and was constantly inspired by his clients to create new things. He created with a variety of materials and in a variety of finishing options including framed Jean-Gabriel Domerque art. He received the Fellow of the Academy of Fine Arts Award and the Knight of the Legion of Honour.
