This limited edition large format giclée print is made from a photographic plate of a fabric design by Maurice Dufrene that appeared in “L’art international d’aujourd‘hui, tapis et tissus, no. 15”. The original fabric is believed to be either in a private collection or destroyed in WW II.

The design which originated c1925 in Paris, France uses circular, triangular and checkerboard motifs in dynamic combinations to create a design that is both free-form yet has structural integrity and rhythm.

Maurice Dufrene 1876-1955 was born in Paris France. He grew up collecting scrap pieces of wood, fabric and cardboard from his father’s wholesale commodities business and would work them into creations in his own make-shift atelier. Dufrene quickly moved to the forefront of modern design and in 1904 became a founding member of the Salon des Artistes Decorateurs, through which he exhibited for thirty years. At the 1925 Exposition, Dufrene was everywhere.
