Louis Majorelle (1859-1926), the “L. Majorelle” to whom this painting is inscribed had one child, Jacques Majorelle (1886-1952), who became a painter. The painting illustrated here is a portrait of Jacques at the age of four. Prouvé collaborated with Majorelle as he did with many of the craftsmen of the École de Nancy, frequently designing marquetry for his friend's furniture.
