Best known as the creator of fictional French detective Jules Maigret, Georges Simenon was a highly prolific Belgian fiction writer who penned nearly 200 novels and over 150 novellas during his lifetime, alongside scores of pulp novels written under more than two dozen pseudonyms. He lived variously in Belgium, France, the United States, Canada, and Switzerland. He is seen here reclining in a Le Corbusier mid-century modern leather chair, wearing a bow tie and a plaid suit jacket.
