Between 1914 and 1916, he supervised, with Pierre Carrier-Belleuse, the making of ‘PanthŽ on de la guerre’, a huge circular panoramic picture, created with help of 20 artists and exposed in a building that was specially built for this, next to the famous ‘Hotel des Invalides’. Inaugurated 19 October 1918, the building was destroyed in 1960 and the picture lost forever.
