VITRAIL

This elegant design by Maurice Dufrène, a leading figure of the French decorative arts movement in the early 20th century, was originally developed as a fine damask in1911. It was then woven as a brocatelle for the celebrated autumn show that same year. The style of the motif is typically Art Nouveau, with entwining foliage balanced symmetrically by rhythmic sets of graphic lines characteristic of the modern Art Deco style. Usually these decorative and architectural styles are very distinctive, but here they blend subtly in this textile design. This stems from Dufrène's desire to adapt his creative work to the evolving tastes of the time.
