Jacques Majorelle (March 7, 1886 - October 14, 1962), son of the celebrated Art Nouveau furniture designer Louis Majorelle, was a French painter. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Nancy in 1901 and later at the Académie Julian in Paris with Schommer and Royer.
His greatest art work is said to be the Majorelle Garden, which he created in 1924. A special colour of blue, which he used extensively in the garden, is named after him - Majorelle Blue. The garden has been open to the public since 1947.
