Modern Tapestry Designed by André Borderie, La Tour De Feu



André Borderie (France 1923-1998) Title: La Tour de Feu Signed “borderie” and numbered “1/3” Wool tapestry handwoven by Atelier C. Legoueix, Aubusson Measures: 218 x 268 cm; 85.8 x 105.5 in Edition: 1/3, circa 1950. André Borderie (France, 1923-1998) André Borderie had a classical technical training, yet he spent all of his free time drawing. Having become a state employee specialized in telecommunications he later, in 1942, met the poster designer Paul Colin who encouraged him to turn to painting. In 1946, he met the couple Véra and Pierre Székely in Vienna, Austria. They were both sculptors, and the encounter resulted in his decision to devote himself entirely to artistic creation. In 1948, Borderie and his wife moved to Bures-sur-Yvette near the home of his new friends, setting up a small artists’ community. There, they devoted themselves to ceramics and painting. They signed their work using the same signature until 1957. The community then disbanded, and André Borderie and his family moved to Senlis, where he continued to work on his pottery and painting alone. Concerned by the environment, Borderie joined the group Espace in 1955, a group that aimed to introduce art into urban spaces. From then on he won numerous commissions through the government body devoted to the promotion of the arts ‘1%’ and created significant sculptural works for public spaces including fountains, bas-reliefs, frescoes and monumental sculptures in a variety of materials such as steel, concrete, stainless steel, ceramics, mosaic tiles, paint etc. Borderie also became involved in the interior decoration of private houses and in the elaboration of architectural utopias. A constantly developing artist, his meeting with Denise Majorel, co-director of the gallery La Demeure, led him to experiment with tapestry making. André Borderie is renowned for his paintings, his tapestries and his ceramics.
