He was encouraged to consider painting as a career, having been introduced to the appreciation of art by his grandfather, Alexandre Champdavoine, who, modest white-collar worker though he was, knew and admired Honoré Daumier, Gustave Courbet, and Édouard Manet.

In 1903, as Gustave Moreau’s executor, he became the curator of the Musée Gustave Moreau in Paris....
