"The career of Jean De Botton began among such School of Paris painters
as Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and Duffy. His early designs won him many
official commissions for murals that remain today in many French public
buildings. His ability to make quick, realistic and elegant portraits
gained him the unusual honor to be appointed the official painter of
the Coronation of King George VI of England in 1937."
