French illustrator and caricaturist René François Xavier Prinet was a contributor to L'Estampe moderne. He studied under Jean-Léon Gérôme, Courtois and Dagnan-Bouveret at the Académie Julian. With some colleagues he founded the Salon des Tuileries. Prinet taught many pupils, first at his open studio in Montparnasse, and then at the École Nationale des Beaux-Arts, where he ran an atelier specifically for female students. Xavier Prinet is perhaps best-remembered today as a member in the 1890s of the movement known as La Bande Noire or the Nubians. He was the son of Henry Prinet, imperial prosecutor in Vitry-le-François, and the brother of diplomat Gaston Prinet. René Prinet was a painter of modernism, and knew how to create an elegant atmosphere.
