Collection Decors et Couleurs. Album No. 1. Pochoirs designed by George Valmier (1930). The final work of a modern art giant.
The work of French painter Georges Valmier (1885-1937) encompassed the great movements in the history of modern painting, starting with Impressionism in his early years, then Cubism which he discovered when he was around 25 years old, and finally Abstractionism from 1921. He also designed sets and costumes for theater and ballet, and models for fabrics, carpets, and other objects. His oil paintings do not exceed 300 in number, since Valmier died prematurely at the age of 51.
Every painting, every design was the culmination of endless preparatory drafts in gouaches, multiple versions of which are works of art in themselves and reflect his penchant for colors and remarkably inventive shapes. Valmier was also a musician, he performed the works of Debussy, Ravel, Fauré, and Satie at major concerts and in churches, and had a decisive influence on the career of André Jolivet.
Near the end of his life, Valmier discovered abstraction and created a number of design based works in vibrant colors. Twenty were translated into pochoir or stencil prints by the French master Jean Saudé, commissioned for a series entited Collection décors et couleurs (Decoration and color collection).
