Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

At the turn of the century, Widhopff was in the service of the Vollard gallery, the gallery belonging to Ambroise Vollard, one of the most important dealers in French contemporary art in the twentieth century. Vollard had hired him to make posters. He also created tapestries for the Beauvais factory during this time. His association with these two places resumed in the 1920s.
During his lifetime, Widhopff earned acclaim for his diverse methods of expression. His uniqueness was his ability to work equally well with both pencil as well as the brush. His drawings are known for their lively expressions, colorful imagery and rich humor.
