B & W and Color Photographs. Text in French. DJ has light shelf-wear present to the DJ extremities. No ownership marks present. Text is clean and free of marks, binding tight and solid, boards lightly rubbed and worn. The first and only substantial monograph on this most important French Art Deco and modernist architect, designer, furniture maker, and sculpture (other than two very short works by George Waldemar in 1948 and 1956). Arbus (1903-1969) trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Toulouse and at his family's cabinetmaking workshop. His career as an architect took off when his design of a single family house was exhibited at the 1937 International Exposition. André Arbus (1903-1969) was a French architect, sculptor, decorator, and furniture designer and was one of the leading European interior designers of the early-twentieth century. Having graduated from the prestigious Ecole des Beaux Arts, Arbus began producing furniture that was inspired by Neo-classicism, which was prevalent in France during the late-eighteenth century. Arbus became a leading figure during the 1930's and 1940's and his furniture was characterized by dramatic proportions and his use of luxurious materials, such as vellum, parchment, lacquer, and fine and rare wood veneers. This monograph, the only one on Arbus, has 390 illustrations in color and black & white. EB; French Edition; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 399 pages. Seller Inventory # 52761

Book Description Norma. Couverture rigide. Condition: Comme neuf. Dust Jacket Condition: Comme neuf. Edition originale. Paris 2003. 1 Volume/1. -- Comme Neuf -- Reliure éditeur cartonnée sous jaquette illustrée. Format in-4°( 31,2 x 24 cm )(.2460 gr ).------- 395 pages avec 390 illustrations noir et blanc et couleur . ********************* "" ANDRÉ ARBUS (Toulouse 1903-Paris 1969 " Je suis d'une vieille famille d'ébénistes. De père en fils depuis très longtemps. Autant dire que je suis né dans un atelier d'ébénisterie. " André Arbus complète cette formation par une culture classique, acquise à l'école des beaux-arts de Toulouse. Il choisit l'art décoratif alors qu s'ouvre à Paris l'Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs de 1925, où il expose une coiffeuse. En 1933, il s'installe à Paris. Les salons, les galeries, les expositions, les critiques lui permettent de se faire connaître de l'élite à laquelle ses créations sont destinées. À 30 ans, il s'impose comme le chef de file du retour à la tradition et à la qualité françaises. Il est le représentant de cet " esprit de suite " du XVIIIe siècle, dans lequel le critique Waldemar George voit le salut du mobilier contemporain. En 1936, Arbus reçoit sa première commande officielle : l'ameublement du ministère de l'Agriculture. Il est présent dans de nombreux pavillons à l'Exposition des arts et techniques dans la vie moderne de 1937, où les métiers d'art et les régions sont à l'honneur. Il particip à l'Exposition universelle de New York, en 1939, avec un meuble-manifeste, monumental, architectural, en sycomore et laque d'or, annonciateur de son œuvre des années 40. À partir de 1946, il devient l'un des fournisseurs attitrés du Mobilier national qui, sous la direction de Georges Fontaine, entreprend un ambitieu programme d'ameublement des ministères et des palais nationaux. Il participe au " rajeunissement " du château de Rambouillet et du palais de l'Élysée, avec ses amis Louis Süe et Jean-Charles Moreux. Entre 1947 et 1951, il est l'architecte du phare du Planier, au large de Marseille Dans les années 50, il aménage des paquebots, participe à de nombreuses expositions, multiplie les réalisations prestigieuses, publiques et privées. La sculpture a toujours occupé une place importante dans ses meubles et dans ses décors. André Arbus la confie à des artistes amis tels que Vadim Androusov, Henry Parayre, Sylva Bernt. En 1952, il crée ses premiers meubles-sculptures fondus en bronze. Dès lors, et jusqu'à sa mort, il se consacre à son œuvre de sculpteur. La vie et l'œuvre d'André Arbus sont l'histoire d'une fidélité à la tradition française. Elles sont l'histoire d'une conviction qui revient comme un leitmotiv tout au long de ses écrits, reprenant à son compte les mots de Léonard de Vinci : " l'homme est la mesure des choses ".
