Item description for Jean-Michel Frank (Memoirs) by Francois Baudot...

Between 1932 and 1940, Jean-Michel Frank completely reinvented the vocabulary of decorative arts. Working in Paris, New York, and South America, Frank was inspired by neoclassicism and the abstraction of primitive arts, brining to the 1930s an original style whose elegance won him the approbation of a wealthy, elite clientele. His name has become a classic reference for collectors of nineteenth-century furniture. The decorative principles that he developed are the foundation of a minimalist style that is very much in vogue today and an inspiration to contemporary designers.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jean-Michel Frank (Memoirs)?

A Genius of 20th Century Decorative Arts  Aug 6, 2008
This is a review of the 2004 hardcover edition of the 1999 English translation, part of the Memories of Design collection by Assouline Publishing. Jean-Michel Frank, born 1895, was a true genius of 20th century decorative arts, designing furniture and interiors for the most chic and affluent clientele of his day. In addition, he often collaborated with equally talent artisans, sculptors Alberto and Diego Giacometti, decorator and cabinet maker Adolphe Chanaux, and Cuban-born architect Emilio Terry, among others. Despite his great successes creating interiors for wealthy art patrons such as Marie-Laurie and Charles de Noailles in Paris, and Nelson Rockefeller in New York City, the artist lept to his death from a window in NYC in 1941. Although this book is not as comprehensive as some others on this great designer, it is good reference for the price.
