Marcel Lenoir attended the School of Decorative Arts at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Early in his career, he was inspired by mystic symbolism and Art Nouveau. "Invocation" showcases a boldly decorated Madonna-like figure probably gesturing to invoke the holy spirit. Lenoir's skilled use of patterns was fostered during his education, as was his appreciation for the traditional subject matter
