Marc Saint Saens Midcentury Rug or Tapestry with Original Stencil-Pochoir, 1960

About

Fabulous midcentury rug or tapestry by Marc Saint Saens (1903-1973) signed, circa 1960 with matching original stencil (pochoir). Marc Saint Saens was a Frenchman known as an influential expressionist painter as well as a major artist in the "Rebirth of Tapestry" in France. He along with Jean Lurcat and Jean Picart le Doux founded the Association of Tapestry Cartoon-Painters in 1947 which was the beginning of the resurgence of 20th century tapestries. An important art deco artist whose works have been published in many deco books also designed tapestries for the SS France as well as public buildings throughout his career. His enormous range of designs include abstract, surreal and pictorial themes from tapestries to public murals. His 1942 tapestry, "The Foolish Virgins" graces the cover of "GREAT TAPESTRIES, The Web of History from the 12th to the 20th Century" by Edita Lausanne. Measures: 300 x 200 cm. (118.1 x 78.7 in.) Very good condition, needs minor restoration. Additional photos provided upon request. Being sold as a pair with its original stencil (pochoir), certainly a wonderful addition to any modern art collection.
