Jean-Michel Frank Book
One of the most influential designers of his time, Jean-Michel Frank was born in Paris to a wealthy family in 1895. A series of tragedies prompted him to travel the globe, where he drew inspiration from the world around him. From the cosmopolitan cultural circles of 1920s Venice to the salons and ateliers of Paris in the 1930s, Frank immersed himself in art and design, eventually perfecting his own unique style. Although he never attended a school of architecture or design, this self-made interior designer's style became the benchmark of Art Deco sophistication. This authoritative volume uncovers the mystery behind the man, demonstrating why his subtly decadent aesthetic is instantly recognizable to this day.
