Each print measures approximately 12
inches by 17 1/2 inches.
The striking floral illustrations by M.P. Verneuil
and other Art Nouveau artists are the latest addition to Panteek's
offerings of French Art Deco pochoir prints. This
outstanding folio was published in 1896 under the
direction of famed graphic designer, author and teacher
Eugène Grasset, whose creations became cornerstones of
Art Nouveau patterns and motifs. Many of the
images have been reproduced by Dover Books and various
poster companies, so we are doubly delighted to offer
the ORIGINALS at a reasonable price.
Maurice Pillard Verneuil (1869-1942) turned from
architectural studies to art, apprenticing under Grasset.
Master and pupil shared an appreciation for Japanese
art, and Verneuil drew inspiration from Asian
handicrafts and art. Other students of Grasset
represented in this collection are Marc Mangin, Anna
Martin, J. Milesi, E. Hervegh, and Marcelle Gaudin. Each
print identifies the artist in a lower corner of the
The dramatically vivid colors were created by the “pochoir” process, wherein single layers of color were added by hand to a lithograph using a stencil, in a precursor of the silk screening technique which is now widely used for art prints.
Each print is from an original 1896 folio.
Each flower in the collection is given three prints: a
rendering of the actual plant, patterns utilizing that
plant, and designs for decorative items with the plant's
motif. The colors are very
fresh and vibrant on a heavy, creamy stock. Each print measures approximately 13 inches wide by 18 inches long.
