Biography  
Georges Lacombe


Georges Lacombe (18 June 1868 – 29 June 1916) was a French sculptor and painter. He was born to a distinguished family of Versailles,  and he received his artistic training at the Académie Julian* from the impressionists Alfred Philippe Roll and Henri Gervex.

At the Académie Julian he met Émile Bernard and Paul Sérusier in 1892, shortly afterwards becoming a member of their artist group, Les Nabis*.

Like many other Nabi he spent the summers from 1888-1897 in Brittany, some sources[citation needed] record that he met Bernard and Sérusier there. He became Le Nabi sculpteur: the sculptor of the group. In fact many sources refer to him solely as sculptor.

Georges Lacombe died in Alençon, Orne on 29 June 1916.
