Point was born in Algeria, but moved to Paris in 1888. He was awarded a medal at the exhibition of the Salon des Artistes Francais. He was influenced by Ruskin and the Pre-Raphaelites. In 1896 he founded a group called 'Hauteclaire', which produced under his direction a large number of ornamental objects. He exhibited in the Salon de la Rose+Croix from 1892-1896, defecting (in Peladan's view) from the final one in 1897. He went back for technical and artistic inspiration to Leonardo and Botticelli and felt that he was thereby leading a revival of modern art.
