About

Beautiful and rare French Art Deco pochoir (handprinted watercolor stencil print) by Benedictus from his portfolio printed by Saude in 1924, titled "Variations". Each print showcases a number of his dramatic designs appropriate for fabric or wall treatment. This beautiful pochoir has incredible color and drama. Matted in acid-free, 2 3/4 inch, 4-ply cream mat. Mat size 21 x 18 inches, Mat opening (image size) 14 x 12 1/2 inches Edouard Benedictus was a painter, writer, composer and chemist who started his carreer in the Art Nouveau period. He wrote an influential article in L'Art décoratif in 1912. However, he was greatly receptive to the stylistic evolution started in 1912 and that became Art Deco. Appreciated for his portfolios "Variations" in 1923 and "Nouvelles variations" in 1928, he became one the most famous artists of the floral Art Deco. He played a special role in the Pavillion de l'Ambassade Francaise in the Exposition des Arts Decoratifs in Paris in 1925. He worked with the most famous Parisian designers in this period, including Andre Groult for whom he created many tapestries for furniture. "Bénédictus was famous for his elegant silks and satins designed for top firms like Brunet, Meunié et Cie., and Tassinari et Châtel. His rugs decorated the Grand Salon and Music Room of the magnificent French Embassy at the 1925 Exhibition. Bénédictus' large pochoir designs display an imaginative geometric elaboration of fields of pure color, punctuated in places with abstract floral motifs".
