This Art Deco print of a period photograph featuring a fabric design by Maurice Dufrene circa 1925 contains circular, triangular and checkerboard motifs in dynamic combinations and results in a design that is both free-form yet has structural integrity and rhythm.
Maurice Dufrene was born in Paris in 1876. 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. He died in 1955. Today much of his work goes unidentified.
