Armand Point was an Algerian born French painter, draftsman and decorative artist who was influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, but took much inspiration from Leonardo and other masters of the early Renaissance.
He is generally considered a Symbolist, which is a loosely defined school of art, and his style varies from the influences mentioned above to Orientalism to styles more associated with classic book illustration.
Resources are a bit thin and scattered, I’ve listed what I can find below.

Interesting and interestingly varied group of pieces. Especially the line and watercolor thing. Has a strangely contemporary illustrative feel.
Yeah. I wish there was more information on whether his images in that style were intended as illustrations.
