  • Description
    SEGUY, E[ugene] A[lain].
    Papillons.
    Paris, [1929].

    Superb lithograph by the master of the format. “In comparison with their variety and brilliance, much Art Deco illustration seems pallid and constrained. And of course their large format makes them particularly attractive for exhibition purposes” (Ray, The Art Deco Book in France).

    E.A. Seguy (1889-1985), was active as an artist in Paris from 1900 to 1925. His mastery of decorative design and colour is evident in the series of 11 beautiful pochoir portfolios he created. Unusual in his capacity to span the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, Seguy’s portfolios remain exquisite examples of ornamentation and composition, featuring motifs based on the natural world, including flowers, foliage, crystals and animals.

    Lithograph hand coloured en pochoir - mounted. Paper size: 45cm by 32cm, overall size mounted: 59cm by 45cm.
