This unique reproduction is based on an original from the beautiful textile archives of French engraver, painter, and textile artist Paule Marrot (1902-1987). Early in her career, Marrot shifted her emphasis from painting to textiles to create expressive patterns from the 1920s through the 1950s. Marrot’s bold use of flowers, color and patterns reflect a compositionally modernist style classically associated with the Art Deco movement. Marrot’s artistic influences include the expressive writings of Marcel Proust, as evident in her work Du coté de chez Swann, based on Proust’s book In Search of Lost Time.
This reproduction is printed in the studio on summerset fine art acid free paper and has been licensed from Marrot's collection of original work which is housed in the Musee d'Orsay. This piece measures 10.5" X 10.5" unframed or 12 3/4" X 12 3/4" framed. The piece can be purchased with a Molasses Ripple Frame as shown. Please choose the art from the drop down menu.
