For his student René Schüzenberger, announcing a new student in the atélier and asking to relay the news to his fellow students: "Mr Biaari [!] de qui j'ai vu les études ne pensait pas entrer demain? En ce cas faites passer ces mots a vos confrères de l'atelier". On the reverse: "Prière de reçevoir Mr Biarri [!] que je présente à mon atelier". The new student referred to in the note may be the Canadian painter, cartoonist, and animator Raoul Barré.

Jean-Paul Laurens was one of the last French academic painters. He trained many young artists in his studio and as a teacher at the Académie Julian. René Schützenberger (1860-1916) was a successful Post-Impressionist painter close to the Les Nabis group.
