Two sections of Gremeret et Pacaud Dessins’ gouache design, “Floral Motifs”, 1940

House of Gremeret et Pacaud Dessins (10 Rue de la Republique, 69001, Lyon) (1900–1989)

“Floral Motifs” (descriptive title only), 1940, two sections of a hand-painted gouache design (presumably for wallpaper or textile manufacturing) laid on separate support sheets with the ink stamp of Gremeret et Pacaud Dessins attached below the left vertical panel.

Gouache on heavy cream wove paper trimmed into sections and reassembled as two decorative panels backed with separate support sheets with the washi surface of the support acting as a border.

Size of left vertical panel (including support sheet border): 64.3 x 49.9 cm

Size of right horizontal panel (including support sheet border): 44.9 x 54.8 cm

Condition: both sheets are restored so that handling marks and cracks in the brittle hand-painted gouache (i.e., opaque watercolour) have been removed/stabilised. The two sections have been laid on separate support sheets of washi paper laminated to heavy archival paper with generous margins.

I am selling this pair of hand-painted gouache designs (presumably for wallpaper or textile manufacturing?) by the design house, Gremeret et Pacaud Dessins, for AU$260 in total for the two panels (currently US$206.05/EUR169.35/GBP145.76 at the time of this listing) including Express Mail (EMS) postage and handling to anywhere in the world, but not (of course) any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries.

If you are interested in purchasing these very beautiful hand-painted gouache panels by a firm specialising in silk textile designs, please contact me (oz_jim@printsandprinciples.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.
