Jacques Villon (1875-1963) was a painter, printmaker and illustrator known for his cubist works. Born with the birth name of Gaston Duchamp, he is also the oldest brother of famous artists Marcel Duchamp and Raymond Duchamp. The name change was made after the French medieval poet François Villon upon his arrival in Paris, whom he admired greatly. During his stay in Paris, he met and worked alongside influential artists including Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who became a great inspiration in Villon's artistic development. He later on transitioned out of the impressionist-period and into the cubist and fauvist periods, which launched the beginning of a great collection of cross-hatched etchings, considered today as one of the most historically important prints of the early 20th century. In 1913 he exhibited in New York City's Armory Show, which introduced European modern art to the United States and showed great success in his cubist works. Villon is the recipient of several awards including the Grand Prix at the Venice Biennale exhibition and multiple honors from various international exhibitions. His works can be found in permanent collections of prestigious museums across the US, Europe and Australia.
