Felix Lorioux (1872–1964), French Illustrator

One of the best illustrators of children's books, Felix Lorioux was born in Angers. He studied art as an apprentice with painters on glass and later in Angers and Paris Ecole des Beaux Arts.
He knew Walt Disney, who admired his work, he was then hired to illustrate Mickey stories for the French market, as well as The Silly Symphony. But Lorioux' style, full of humour and fancy, widely inspired by Art nouveau and japanese painting, was too far from Disney world, and the contract was broken in 1934.
Lorioux was a quiet man, with no interest in self-promotion, he was also a perfectionist - his wife had to pry his works from his hands to have them sent to the printer.
