ABOUT JEAN-MICHEL FRANK
For much of his career Frank was known as the maître of understatement, opting for a neutral color palette, allowing volume and form to dictate the spaces he created.
Frank’s aesthetic vision is characterized by the equal importance he placed on form and texture, and through his collaborations with Alberto and Diego Giacometti, plaster and bronze became an important part of his design repertoire.
Nelson Rockefeller commissioned the most avant-garde designer of the period, Jean-Michel Frank, to decorate a floor of his newly renovated triplex at 810 Fifth Avenue. The result was one of the most spectacular timeless interiors ever created.
A scion of a multinational banking family—members included the teenage diarist Anne Frank, and at least once, "Cousin Jean" saved her family home by loaning a mortgage payment—the Paris-born designer was largely responsible for the era's emphasis on non-colors. This was due to his 1926–27 design for Marie-Laure and Charles de Noailles's hôtel particulier at 11 place des Etats-Unis in Paris. Man Ray's black-and-white images of the salon have become shorthand for le style Frank. Paneled in squares of parchment and outfitted with blocky white chairs, lamps made of quartz chunks, and bronze doors, the exquisite room is impassively monolithic.
All his pieces were eventually copied and are still beacons of contemporary design. Without knowing it, everyone today owns a piece of furniture or lighting, designed by Frank.
In 1941, at the age of 46, in despair over his condition as an émigré Jewish artist, Frank threw himself from the upper floors of a Manhattan apartment building and ended his life. “He was profoundly fragile yet extraordinarily prolific,” says Pierre-Emmanuel Martin-Vivier, author of Jean-Michel Frank: L'étrange luxe du rien.
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.”
