The morateur gallery in Los Angeles holds a rare collection of beautiful french gouaches which are for sale for use in the design industry.
These authentic designs were originally made for a fabric and wallpaper company in france called ‘essef decors muraux’ which partnered with various famous french artists to create unique and original creations. About 3 years ago the factory went out of business and during the auction sale about 60% out of the 6,000 designs were acquired by museums. Most of the works for sale are from the turn of the century, the 1920′s and 30′s and a few from the 1940′s to 70′s. see more gorgeous vintage designs online here.
