Georges Lacombe (painter)

Georges Lacombe (June 18, 1868 – June 29, 1916) was a French sculptor and painter.

Born to a distinguished family of Versailles, he received his artistic training at the Académie Julian from the impressionists Alfred Roll and Henri Gervex. There he met Emile Bernard and Paul Sérusier in 1892, shortly afterwards becoming a member of their artist group, Les Nabis.

Like many other Nabi he spent the summers from 1888-1897 in Brittany, some sources record that he met Bernard and Sérusier there. He became "Le Nabi sculpteur": the sculptor of the group. In fact many sources refer to him solely as sculptor.

Georges Lacombe died in Alençon, Orne on June 29, 1916.
