This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Jean Boris Lacroix (1902-1984) was the illegitimate son of Grand Duke Boris Vladimirovich of Russia, a grandson of Czar Alexander II of Russia and a first cousin of Czar Nicholas II.  He was born in France and raised in his mother's family.

Lacroix's mother, Jeanne, had died before the 1920s, and was buried in Père Lachaise cemetery.  The Grand Duke visited her grave once he came to live in France, and very often would see his son, Jean, before the outbreak of WWII. ???

Jean Lacroix began his career in 1920 when he entered the workshop of Paul Dumas. He completed his training by working from 1925 to 1930 as a drawing professional and furniture designer for the various houses of designer Madeleine Vionnet.

Unique to Lacroix was his modernist style with geometric lines and few ornaments and his use of glass and metal. From his numerous creations, his lamps were the most famous.

In 1927, his work including chandeliers, sconces and lamps, was exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Décorateurs and the ‘Salon d’Automne’.
