Born Émile Méry Frédéric Gaston Duchamp in Normandy, France, Jacques Villon came from an artistic family. His siblings Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Marcel Duchamp, and Suzanne Duchamp-Crotti, were all artists. To set himself apart from all the artists in the family, Gaston Duchamp changed his name to Jacques Villon. While he began his career in the study of law, he soon became dissatisfied and switched to art. Villon worked making illustrations and advertisements for Paris newspapers and helped organize the first Salon d'Automne in Paris in 1903. He also participated in the 1913 Armory Show in New York where his works were introduced to an American audience. Villon's works are in the collections of many museums including the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the National Gallery in Washington D.C.
