In 1894, Georges took the pseudonym Manzana, his grandmother’s maiden name. Returning from London, he lived in Montmartre. Durand-Ruel, who supported and imposed his father, exhibits his paintings.
The reading of the Thousand and One Nights converted him to Orientalism, and he presented the fruit of his daydreams at the third Salon d'Automne in 1906. Later on, Ambroise Vollard and Duret exhibited his purely decorative works influenced by Art Nouveau, while he distinguished himself in the animal genre.
His "oriental and animal" creations, which included furniture, ceramics, glassware and illustrations, were presented in 1914 at the Museum of Decorative Arts.
