Born in the north of Paris in 1884, Segonzac toured in Europe, America, and Asia where he was inspired by local geographical landscape treating the independent atmosphere of the countries as the grace of nature. He also focused on capturing the gestures of dynamic characters and created a special edition of Sheherazade with the founder of modern dance, Isadora Duncan. In the early 1900s, he participated in the exhibitions at Salon d’Automne and Salon des Indépendants. He was friends with Jean Dufy, Maurice de Vlaminck, and Max Jacob. In the 1930s, he lived in London and New York and traveled to London, Chicago, Basel, and Geneva with large-scale exhibitions. In 1947, he inherited a seat in the Royal College of Art in London and in the following year he became a member of the Royal College of Art in Brussels.
