THE ART BOOK

Published by Editions Louvre Victoire, this art book is exclusively dedicated to Max Le Verrier’s life and artistic work and celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of his death paying tribute to him.

 

This work invites you on a journey throughout the time and will immerse you in the roaring twenties- the liberation period, full of pleasures, culturally and artistically buzzing- recounting the hectic and fascinating life of that so creative and talented Art Deco-minded artist.

 

Deeply involved in the beauty of that movement, Max Le Verrier both sculptor and producer, passed on a priceless artistic heritage to us. His creations embody the French refinement. Most of them realized in the 1920-30’s, still remain amazingly modern and keep being the stuff of dreams all around the world. Let yourself be seduced by the grace and the charm of his iconic sculptures, by the purity and sobriety of their timeless shapes.

 

As the pages go by, you learn about the fanciful life of that tireless sculptor, illustrated with wonderful pictures of his pieces of art, archives, family and workshop shots; the majority of them never having been seen.

The last part of the book is concerned with the emblematic works, photographed in exceptional places, bringing a touch of elegance and perfectly matching their environment.

 

Max Le Verrier managed to link preciously the History, arts and crafts, and home design with ingenuity and sensibility.
