Victor-Joseph Roux-Champion (1871-1953) studied with Gustave Moreau at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts.  In 1896 he met Charles Cottet in Brittany, and it is he who taught Roux-Champion zinc-etching, and also showed him some woodcut techniques.  Thanks to an encounter 1899 Jean-François Raffaelli, Roux-Champion learned to add color to his prints.  In 1901 he became one of the founders of the Société des Graveurs en Couleurs sur Vernis Mou.  Roux-Champion continued to befriend other artists along the way, working for instance with Pierre-Auguste Renoir in Cagnes.  Renoir even made a soft-ground etching portrait of the Roux-Champion.
