ABOUT THE ARTIST
All the muses bent over the cradle of Edward Benedictus at his birth from a Dutch-born Jewish family: he remained both as the inventor of the laminated glass and as one of the masters of the Art Deco style.
Edward Benedictus presented himself as a descendant of Spinoza. His aunt Judith Gauthier, daughter of the famous writer, Theophile Gauthier, diverted him from an artistic career that she considered too inauspicious. After the Great War, he left the sciences to devote himself to the arts: he designed stage sets and costumes, art deco style furnishing fabrics, and even wrote a symphony. The Triplex Glass Company, which he founded in 1912, was taken over by Saint-Gobain in 1927.
The Picturalist offers a curated wall art collection featuring International emerging artists from a wide range of artistic backgrounds.
