ÉLOGE CARPET
BY CHRISTIAN BÉRARD    DESIGN 1930’S – 1940’S
IDYLLE COLLECTION
LA MANUFACTURE COGOLIN

 

THE IDYLLE COLLECTION BRINGS TO LIFE A SELECTION OF ARCHIVAL GOUACHES BY ARTIST, FASHION ILLUSTRATOR
AND DESIGNER CHRISTIAN BÉRARD. TRUE TO BÉRARD’S UNMISTAKABLE BRUSHSTROKES AND COLOR PALETTE, AS WELL
AS TO THE QUALITY OF THE ORIGINAL RUGS PRODUCED IN THE 1930’S-1940’S, THE COLLECTION IS AS BOLD AS BÉRARD’S
HISTORICAL IMPACT AND AS BEAUTIFUL AS HIS WORK IN FASHION, DESIGN AND THEATRE. A MAJOR PERSONALITY OF THE
SALON SCENE DURING THE INTER- WAR YEARS, BÉRARD WAS AN AESTHETE AND MAN OF MANY TALENTS: A PAINTER, A
FASHION ILLUSTRATOR, A SCENOGRAPHER, A DECORATOR

AS A CLOSE FRIEND OF INTERIOR DESIGNER JEAN-MICHEL FRANK, HE STARTED TO CREATE RUG DESIGNS, INCLUDING
COMMISSIONS FOR LA MANUFACTURE COGOLIN
