Biography

Henri Zo took up painting at early age, due to the influence of his father Achille, a French painter who ran the École des Beaux-Arts Bordeaux. Henri studied at the Lycee de Bordeaux and the École des Beaux-Arts Bordeaux prior to being admitted the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1896. The following year he participated in the Salon des Artistes Français for the first time in his career. He received a silver medal at the 1900 Exposition Universelle, the Rosa Bonheur prize in 1903, and the National Prize in 1905, and he became a Cheavlier of the Legion of Honor in 1910. He worked as a portraitist during World War I and later entered two works into the painting competition at the 1932 Summer Olympics, but did not win any medals. The following year he was a member of the committee for the Gabriel-Ferrier prize, but his life was cut short in a car accident, the same fate that had befell his father 32 years earlier.
