In 1979, artist and designer Nathalie du Pasquier moved to Milan, where she became a founding member of the influential and decade-defining Memphis Group, along with Ettore Sottsass, Alessandro Mendini, and others, creating patterns for decorated surfaces, such as textiles and furniture. Despite her design success, in 1987 she shifted her focus to her fine-art practice, and painting in particular. Her paintings and works on paper feature geometric furniture, lamps, and the unexpected and energetic color relationships for which the Memphis group is known.
