This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Georges Frederic Roetig (b.1873 / d.1961)

Georges Roetig was was born in Le Havre, France on October 1, 1873.

Roetig began his studies in Paris.  His tutors included B. Constant, J. Lefebvre and Jean Paul Laurens.  In 1894 Roetig began exhibiting at Salon des Artistes Frananais.  He gained much acclaim and was awarded several prestigious prizes and medals in 1902, 1904 and the Prix Rosa Bonheur in 1913.

Little is known about the life of Georges-Frederic Rotig beyond his participation in exhibitions at the Salon of French Artists.  Rotig collaborated on the book, The Hunt Illustrated and was also exhibited at the Society of Animal Painters and several commercial galleries.

Rotig specialized in paintings of lions, deer and wild boars. He studied the animals in detail and then sketched them extensively before attempting to paint them. Several of his images depict animals in dynamic movement and are dusk or nighttime scenes.

Roetig died in 1961.
