Paul Iribe was an illustrator and journalist, part of a Parisian, bohemian clique in the early 20th century. Like his illustration contemporaries (including George Barbier, Georges Lepape, George Martin, and Pierre Brissaud,) he drew his subjects in a modernist style, influenced by Japanese painting. In 1915, he went to work for the film industry in Hollywood, as a costume designer, art director, and production designer on various projects. He also dated Coco Chanel, who was with him when he died in 1935.
