Maurice André

Composition

 

Aubusson tapestry woven in the Tapisseries de France workshop.
Circa 1960.

 

 

Maurice André settled in Aubusson for the duration of the second world war. A founding member of the group “Tapisserie de France” and a member of the A.P.C.T. (Association des Peintres-Cartonniers de Tapisserie), he developed a personal style, different from that of Lurçat, characterised by rigorous, cubist-influenced flat areas of colour, often using a limited palette ; he received large-scale public commissions for the Council of Europe in Strasbourg (“L’Europe unie dans le Travail et la Paix”) or for the French pavilion at the Brussels Exhibition in 1958 (“La Technique moderne au service de l’Homme”). Gradually (as with Wogensky and Prassinos,…) his style evolved towards more abstraction, firstly lyrical and then more and more geometric, in a way very similar to Matégot.

 

Always geometric (going as far as pure abstraction in the 1970’s) Maurice André’s style is here limited to a cubic, kaleidoscopic vision : we can distinguish birds, roots, waves and perhaps a cage, …, all themes that can also be found in Lurçat’s work.
