The many talents of PIERRE-ÉMILE LEGRAIN (1888 - 1929), designer, interior designer, binder, framer, landscaper, make it a character as mysterious as sought after bibliophiles, fine art lovers and collectors of exceptional furniture. Formed by Paul Iribe, Pierre Legrain makes the decisive meeting of Jacques Doucet in 1912. He creates for the couturier nearly 400 bindings, many frames for his exceptional collection of modern art – especially that of the "Demoiselles d'Avignon" –, as well as a series of African-cubist furniture. Member of the UAM, which he draws the logo, Legrain frequents André Breton, Paul Éluard, Jean Cocteau, the sculptors Gustave Miklos and Henri Laurens, the painter Francis Picabia, or the milliner Jeanne Tachard for which he draws a garden. His rare work - a hundred pieces of furniture and some interior fittings - is today scattered in museums or private collections around the world. First transversal monograph on this extraordinary creator, this book restores the thread of his life, his many meetings with avant-garde artists and his achievements in all fields, highlighting the formal links between his work as an assembler, bookbinder and draftsman. Through the entourage of Legrain - friends and sponsors -, it presents the exceptional artistic context in which this singular work could have emerged.
