Recently, I have been helping several clients choose art for their walls. While I love sourcing local art, I've recently fallen in love with the framed textiles of late, French artist Paule Marrot. I love the color and whimsical nature of her works. And as an art history nerd, I like them even more for their historical background. Marrot was a French painter and textile artist (1902-1987). Marrot's "expressive linework and rich color palate is often associated with Art Deco movement, yet her simple, lyrical style has an undeniable contemporary feel." Below are some of my favorites of her pieces.
