Elie GREKOFF

La marchande de songes (the dream vendor)

 

Aubusson tapestry woven by the Caron workshop.
With torned label, n°1/6.
Circa 1970.

 

Elie Grekoff, whose aesthetic is similar to that of Lurçat, designed over 300 cartons.

 

“The dream vendor” , like “The little bird catcher” are typical of a vein characteristic of Grekoff where melancholic children consider each other within a dream-like landscape against a background of large flat areas of colour, redolent of an illustration for a folk tale.
