Louis Süe and André Mare, ‘Bench’, ca. 1920, Galerie Marcilhac

Shapely corner legs and girdle imitating a mahogany drapery. Filling fully redone.

The bench was realized while Louis Sue and André Mare ran the most fertile and splendor days of their careers. The Compagnie des Arts Français, which had just reached recognition, was irrigated with original pieces always exhibited at major rendez-vous in Paris such as the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts.
