    Twenty Plates by Eugene Alain Seguy
    "Master of the Pochior Technique"

    E. A. (Eugene Alain) Seguy. Floréal Dessins & Coloris Nouveau. Paris: Calavas, [circa 1920]. First Edition. Portfolio containing twenty plates, each with three to five pochoir images. Includes tissue guards. Contents laid loosely in paper wrappers with title Floréal printed on the front panel and inside the back panel along with publishing information. All laid into the original publisher's half striped cloth, board portfolio. The portfolio is intact but lacks ties. Light edge wear and minor marginal soiling to some plates, not affecting images. Wrapper with small spine tears and cellophane tape repairs inside at head and foot. Very good collection of pochoir images.

    Eugene Alain Seguy was one of the foremost French designers of the early 20th century. His work captures the essence of both the Art Nouveau and Art Deco Styles. He was a master of the pochoir (stencil) technique which allowed him to create images with dense and vibrant colors.
