Introduction
Jacob contributed to the development of modern poetry in France during the early 20th century. He was an important figure during the formative period of Cubism and was a close friend of Picasso, Gris, and Apollinaire. He was active both as a writer and a painter and draftsman. Jacob converted to Christianity in 1909, though he continued to live a bohemian life until 1921 when he retired to devout seclusion in Saint-Benoît-sur-Loire, though he returned briefly to Paris in 1927, and returned to living as he had. Because of his Jewish origins, he was arrested and died in a Nazi prison in Drancy during the German occupation of France.
