Art I Heart: Paule Marrot

I am always on the hunt for new and interesting art, and especially art through different mediums.  Of course I love abstract paintings on canvas, but I also love mixed media, charcoal, and textiles, especially because they add an element of interest to a space.  So when I saw the textile art of Paule Marrot available on Natural Curiosities, I was immediately drawn in by her bold use of color and the chinoiserie feel to many of her pieces. Paule Marrot was a French artist who created most of her textile works from the 1920s-1950s.  Marrot’s bold use of flowers, color and patterns reflect a compositionally modernist style classically associated with the Art Deco movement.  You might be familiar with the Feathers piece.  I have seen it featured in a few highly publicized rooms (and I absolutely LOVE it!):

Here are a few more favorites of mine:

They are all just so fun.  I could see them working equally well in a modern living room or a kids play room.  In fact, I've been debating on whether or not I want to purchase Feathers for our house.  I feel like it is a bit overdone at this point, but it's so beautiful and would be perfect for over the couch.  Each print is ~$1000 framed or ~$400 unframed.  I believe Natural Curiosities is to the trade only, so if you want to purchase a piece, email me and I can get it ordered for you!

Seen any interesting art lately?


  1. I love the chinoiserie feel too! One day I will be able to spend the big bucks on art -- for now, it's Etsy all the way!

  2. I have Lavender hanging in my bedroom and love waking up to it every am. :) I got it on MAJOR sale though. Love your favs too!

  3. Yesterday I walked into a brand-new gallery that had just opened in my city. I had spotted a sculpture and a painting that I loved and wanted to get some information about. I thought that both the sculpture and the painting might be somewhere in the $500 to $1500 range. Imagine my shock when I was told that the sculpture (which was approximately 14 inches by 9 inches) was $18,500 and the painting was $19,000! I think I'll try Etsy.


What say you? I'm all ears.
