ABOUT ANDREE PUTMAN
Andrée Christine Aynard was born into a wealthy family of bankers and notables from Lyon. Her paternal grandfather, Edouard Aynard, founded the Maynard & Sons Bank; her paternal grandmother, Rose de Montgolfier, was a descendant of the hot-air balloon inventors' family. Her father was a graduate from the prestigious Ecole Normale Supérieure who spoke seven languages. Her first jobs, allowed Andrée to meet artists, characters more familiar to her than intellectuals. She was raised in an artistically-rich environment.
Andrée Aynard married Jacques Putman, an art critic, collector and publisher. Together they associated with artists such as Pierre Alechinsky, Bram van Velde, Alberto Giacometti and Niki de Saint Phalle.
At age 53, Andrée Putman founded ‘Ecart’ and started the career which made her famous from Hong Kong to New York. She started by giving life again to forgotten designers from the 1930s: René Herbst, Jean-Michel Frank, Pierre Chareau, Robert Mallet-Stevens, Gaudi, Eileen Gray... "My only concern was to interest at least ten persons and I would have accomplished something which would carry me for all my life". These pieces of furniture won over not ten, but thousands of people. "I loathe pompous luxury. I take interest in the essential, the framework, the basic elements of things."
She was commissioned by Ian Schrager to design the Morgans Hotel in New York in 1984, marking a turning point in Andrée Putman’s career: she managed to make a high-standard hotel with a small budget and asserted her style with sober rooms and visual effects. From the 1980s, she led design projects such as Le Lac in Japan, Im Wasserturm in Germany and the Sheraton in Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris; stores for Azzedine Alaia, Balenciaga, Bally and Lagerfeld.
Known as la reine du damier (the queen of the checkerboard), Andrée Putman had an outlook of “radical simplicity” that made her seem perpetually modern. In a career that spanned more than four decades, her design was designated “Above taste”.“Materials are not objects, like letters in a vocabulary,” she once said. “They have connotations, they belong to a code, like shapes or words.”
“Style and money have nothing to do with each other,” she once mused on the concept of luxury. “Good design is pure and simple, and I am interested in that family of things that will never date.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Anthony Jenkins lives and creates in rural Mono, Ontario, north of Toronto. For four decades, his editorial illustrations, caricatures and portraits delighted the readers of Canada’s national newspaper, The Globe and Mail.
He has traveled the world with a sketchpad, visiting eighty-three countries to date. His first love is black and white. His later colour work is inspired by the vivid life and hues of the Third World.
In his own words: “A likeness captured is a given. If it may be captured elegantly, in just a few, telling lines that dance and please the eye in their own right, that’s the goal.”
