Title: Collection of Original Artwork for Furniture...
Publisher: c. 1930s, Alfafar, Valencia
Publication Date: 1930
Book Condition: Near Fine
Album containing unmounted watercolor and gouache, pencil, and color printed studies of individual pieces of furniture and interior design ensembles, probably created as maquettes for advertising purposes. Includes 17 in pencil, ranging in size from 5.5-by-9 inches to 11-by-17 inches; and 32 in color, most about 11-by-15 inches, with 3 large pieces, 18-by-24 inches, folded once down the middle. Total of 48 pieces, some a little rubbed or chipped along the edges; a few of the pencil sketches foxed; but the whole is overall nice and bright, suitable for display. Remarkably detailed (the polished wood shines!) and accomplished artwork shows lavish (nigh on palatial) bedrooms and dining rooms -- with ornate beds, bookcases, chairs, tables, bureaus, dressers, and more, prominently on display. 13 images (in pencil or in color) focus on specific pieces of furniture, sometimes many per page, taking them out of their context (rooms) and allowing a detailed look at the piece itself. The designs seem primarily focused on classical and neoclassical styles, but Muebles Rodriguez is known for carrying modern, colonial, Provencal, and avant garde pieces as well -- some of that influence is apparent here. A lovely and rich presentation. Bookseller Inventory # D4924
