Jean-Gabriel Domergue was born in Bordeaux, France, in 1889. Already at the age of 17, he exhibited his work at the Salon Des Artistes Français ("Exhibition of French Artists"). In 1913, Domergue was awarded the Prix de Rome — the highest award in France in the field of art.

The manner of Jean-Gabriel Domergue was recognizable, his landscapes were distinguished by a light and airy style. However, in the 1920s, the artist's preferences changed dramatically, and Domergue began to paint beautiful Parisian women, revealing to the world the image of a flirtatious and elegant Frenchwoman. 

Moreover, it is he who is considered the creator of the pin-up style, since often famous ballerinas and actresses at that time were flaunted in semi-nude and playful poses.
