Jacques Nam (pseudonym of Jacques Lehmann) began his artistic education at the École des beaux-arts in 1898. His talent as a draughtsman opened the doors of Parisian publishers and he provided illustrations for humorous magazines such as Le Rire, Le Sourire, Le Bon Vivant, etc. In addition to Colette's Les Chats, Nam illustrated Mirbeau's Dingo, Farrère's Les Civilisés, and other works by famous writers.
