En Francais: Paule Marrot Art

In a stunning addition to their art collection, Uocmas celebrate the work of Parisian textile designer Paule Marrot (1902-1987). 

Widely known for her work in textile printing with a flat, two-dimensional colourful style, Paule Marrot’s upbeat patterns became popular in the U.S. after World War II, and won her multiple awards and accolades in France throughout her career.  Born to a bohemian family, she studied decorative arts including engraving and textile printing, dabbled in fashion fabric design and now more than 450 of her designs are licensed  out, and have been used by design companies such as Nike and Anthropology.

Uocmas’s Paule Marrot collection is a beautiful reproduction range of three artworks produced in California and printed on artist’s paper with the original textile detail in tact to give the piece a unique tactility.  The artwork is framed impeccably, mounted on natural linen and cased in a contemporary perspex box frame.
