Paule Marrot

Retrospective Collection (1950-1974)

"His art is a language. Like others with words, Paule Marrot with leaves and flowers, describes that thing so simple and so difficult to express which is called happiness. "André Arbus

Very early in her career, Paule Marrot (1902-1987) translated her interest in painting into decorative art. She creates very expressive drawings from the 20s to the 70s. Paule Marrot makes bold use of nature; her colours and trends reflect a modern compositional style classically associated with the Art Deco movement. It is also the poetry that Paule Marrot works with - a real revolution on thread and weft! Her master is Maurice Denis, previously Renoir and later Raoul Dufy. They all advise her to follow the path of painting. She doesn't listen to them, so much the better.

The Decorative Arts gain an unparalleled creator of atmosphere, acclaimed by painters, decorators, writers and publishers. Its fabrics with delicious names ("Tante Irma", "Magnolia", "Comtesse Olga", "Mon oncle Émile", "Du côté de chez Swan", "Voici des fleurs et des fruits", "Nono au Cannet"... ) never cease to seduce France and abroad. America in particular is conquered; her creations can be found in Jacqueline Kennedy's salons where they embody a French art of living.

In order to realize this collection with Paule Marrot Editions, the team Le Presse Papier has worked with meticulous attention to detail on each drawing, colour and painting presented here.

The objective was to keep the poetic intention of the artist's work, spontaneous, joyful and the lightness of his hand. 

It is our great honour to present this work to you.

We would like to express our warmest thanks to the beneficiaries.
