About this Item

Folio, pp. [4]; with 24 plates (12 coloured); a fine copy in publisher's illustrated portfolio boards, complete with original ties See Becker, Art Nouveau Jewelry, pp. 46-47 First edition of this exquisite suite of designs by the French decorative artist and sculptor, Paul Follot (1877-1941).A former pupil of Eugène Grasset, Follot was the chief designer for the Parisian gallery, La Maison Moderne, established in 1898 by Julius Meier-Graefe, a leading German writer and art critic and founder of Pan, the Munich based journal of decorative arts. The gallery was similar to Bing's L'Art Nouveau, but with a particular emphasis on jewellery, and the diffusion of the modern style through jewels for a variety of tastes and budgets. Paul Follot's work for the gallery was emphatically modern and linear, taking La Maison Moderne firmly into the twentieth century. His jewellery designs, shown here on the coloured plates, are abstract (for example, he often used stylised sea algae as a motif), and he worked with angular and forceful lines. They include combs, hat-pins, buttons, necklaces, collars, earrings, brooches, bracelets, pendants, buckles, bangles etc. sometime featuring precious and semi-precious stones. The other designs on half-tone plates depict cutlery, tea-sets, candlesticks, cosmetic sets, serving platters and bowls, vases, cafetières, carafes, glasses, etc. La Maison Moderne closed in 1904, but Follot continued to design jewellery until 1914.
