Jean-Gabriel Domergue (1889–1962) was a celebrated French painter specialising in portraits of Parisian women. Born in Bordeaux, he studied at the École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts and in 1911 was a winner of the Prix de Rome. From the 1920s onward he concentrated on portraits, and claimed to be "the inventor of the pin-up". He also designed clothes for the designers Paul Poiret and Henry Marque. From 1955 until 1962 he was the curator of the Musée Jacquemart-André, organising exhibitions of the works of Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Goya and others. His works are displayed in institutions such as the Royal Collection in London. Cecil Saint-Laurent (Jacques Laurent) (1919-2000) was a prolific historical novelist, essay writer, and screenwriter. He received the Prix Goncourt in 1971 for his novel Les Bêtises and in 1986 was elected to the Academie francaise.
