History

A native Parisian, Siméon studied at the École des Arts Décoratifs and quickly became known for his facility in creating woodblock prints. The fashion illustrations he contributed to Gazette du bon ton and Modes et manières d’auhourd’hui were rendered as woodcuts and then printed using the pochoir process. He created woodcut illustrations for dozens of books including works by Anatole France, Edgar Allen Poe, Voltaire and Oscar Wilde.
