Exhibition at the Jewish Museum, New York, 4 November 2016 - 26 March 2017

The designer and architect Pierre Chareau (1883-1950) was a pivotal figure in modernism. His Art Deco furniture is avidly collected and his visionary glass house, the Maison de Verre, is celebrated all around the globe, but the breadth of his design genius has been little explored. Chareau linked architecture, fine arts, and style; designed furniture for avant-garde films and chic homes; collected artists such as Picasso and Mondrian; and was a radical innovator in the use of materials.
In this exhibition catalogue, essays by leading scholars embrace the full scope of his invention, offering detailed analyses of individual projects, and study the interdisciplinary nature of his work, his Jewish background, and his place in the avant-garde of Paris between the wars. Extensive illustrations present a rich sampling of Chareau's furniture, architecture, interiors, fabrics, and wallpapers, as well as his own important art collection.
