Biography from the Archives of askART

Jack Abeille (1873-1949)

Jack Abeille was born in Varenne-St. Hilarie, France, in 1873 and by his early 20s had established a reputation as a skilled cartoonist, illustrator and commercial artist. During his career, he worked for several French humour magazines, illustrated books and designed a famous series of WWI postcards.

He created several series of thematic Art Nouveau* postcard designs including Les Saisons (The Seasons), Les Baigneuses (The Swimmers), and a series on flowers for the 1900 Exposition Universelle* (Paris).

Because of the beautiful women shown on his cards, they are often listed in the “glamour” category in catalogues.
