Happy Birthday Jean Picart Le Doux!! Born today in 1902, this artist was a French carpet designer. He worked in tandem with Jean Lurcat and was one of the most productive tapestry designers of the 20th century. They founded the Association of Tapestry Cartoon-Painters, pioneering the revival of tapestry design and believed tapestries should be original designs and not copies of paintings. The artists designed works meant for hanging on the wall and specific architectural spaces.
