Samarkande - 20 Compositions en Couleurs dans le Style Oriental. Seguy, Eugene Alain. Paris, Charles Massin, Librairie Générale de l’Architecture et des arts Décoratifs, (ca. 1925).
Brilliant series of colour pochoir plates with floral designs in Art Nouveau style with an ‘Oriental touch’ by Eugene Alain Seguy (1889-1985), one of the foremost French designers at the beginning of the 20th century. He worked in both the Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles and published many design folios utilizing the pochoir technique, a printing process that employs a series of stencils to lay dense and vivid colour. The designs could be used for fabrics for dress and furnishing but also for wallpapers and carpets.
