Lucien Jonas (1880-1947) : Born into an industrial family in the North, Lucien Jonas passed his bac in 1898, before return to the School of Fine Arts in Paris. During his brilliant studies, he became a member of the Société des Artistes Français in 1901, while also working in Albert Maignan's workshop. The beginning of his career will be punctuated with prizes: silver medal at the Salon of 1905, a 2nd prize in Rome the same year ... His career well underway, he married Suzanne Bedorez in 1908, who will give him three children. The recognition of his talent did not weaken: 1911 the Superior Council of Fine Arts awarded him a national prize, 1915 he was approved as a military painter, in 1916 he was appointed painter of the navy. He will carry out wall decorations, tapestry boxes for the Goblins, banknotes, portraits of known and unknown men, genre scenes ... This hard worker will produce throughout his life a considerable work earning him to be named knight of the legion of honor in 1929. Lucien Jonas did not stop paying homage to Valenciennes, unfortunately many of his works disappeared in 1940 during the bombings. You will find at the Museum of the salt marshes a portrait of a family of salt workers called "Golden Wedding" made in 1925. It is present in many museums. The Carnavalet Museum dedicated an exhibition to him in 2003 and the Valenciennes museum in 2006.
