Maurice Pillard Verneuil
Art Nouveau designs are characterized by organic whiplash curves, tentacle-like tendrils and flowers, and sinuous human and animal forms. Combinaisons Ornementales, published about 1901 by the Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, Paris, is considered the bible of decorative Art Nouveau elements.
A copy of Combinaisons Ornementales, an exceptional collection of patterns and designs is in the Museums collection, was created by three artists: Georges Auriol (pseudonym for Jean- Georges Huyot, French, 18631938), Alphonse Maria Mucha (Czech, 18601939), and Maurice Pillard Verneuil (French, 18691942). Our ornate neckerchief design was created by combining two distinctive Art Nouveau patterns signed by Verneuil. Silk twill. Imported. 22” x 22”.
