PAULE MARROT made her debut at NATURAL CURIOSITIES this season! French textile artist,painter, engraver, teacher. Paule Marrot's work was celebrated at NATURAL CURIOSITIES with the introduction of wonderfully large reproductions of her fabric design sketches and patterns. Paule Marrot's life in art was influenced by Impressionist Auguste Renoir and Fauvist Raoul Dufy. Billy Baldwin and Jacqueline Kennedy American style makers both- loved Marrot's fabrics.

All the Marrot works are large most 42" x 54" making the series captivating and joyous. I loved seeing them en masse. It would be hard to choose just one.

“You paint with your heart the flowers of the fields,
love, youth, the seasons, everything that is wonderful in life,”
Several years ago Brunschwig and Fils introduced a PAULE MARROT Collection. Marrot designed the B&F selected prints in the 30's, 40's and 50's in Paris. In 1945 Marrot brought her French collection to America. Jacqueline Kennedy designed a living room around Paule's LES TULIPES COTTON PRINT. I must search out my design books for a picture of this room.
