PIERRE CHAREAU: MODERN ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN. Esther da Costa Meyer. Jewish Museum, New York, 2016. Published in association with Yale University Press, New Haven. 288 pp. with 285 col. ills. 29 x 24 cm. ISBN 9780300165791 In English.
Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: The designer and architect Pierre Chareau (1883-1950) was a pivotal figure in modernism. His extraordinary Art Deco furniture is avidly collected and his visionary glass house, the Maison de Verre, is celebrated, but the breadth of his design genius has been little explored. Chareau linked architecture, fine arts, and style; designed furniture for avant-garde films and chic homes; collected artists such as Picasso and Mondrian; and was a radical innovator in the use of materials. Essays by leading scholars embrace the full scope of his invention, offering detailed analyses of individual projects, the interdisciplinary nature of his work, his Jewish background, his place in the avant-garde of Paris between the wars, and his more recent reception. Extensive illustrations present a rich sampling of Chareau's furniture, architecture, interiors, fabrics, and wallpapers, as well as his own important art collection.
