Eugene Alain Seguy

Eugene Alain Seguy was one of the foremost French designers at the beginning of the 20th century. Working in both the Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles, he published many design folios utilizing the pochoir technique, a printing process that employs a series of stencils to lay dense and vivid color.

Eugene Alain Seguy produced eleven albums of illustrations and designs from the turn of the century to the 1930s, and his style reflected the influences of both Art Nouveau and Art Deco:

Les Fleurs et Leurs Applications Decoratives (1900)
Samarkande – 20 Compositions en Couleurs dans le Style Oriental (1914)
Floreal (1920)
Papillons (1924)
Insectes (1924)
Primavera --Dessins et Coloris Nouveaux (1929)
Suggestions (1930) and Prismes - 40 Planches de Dessins et Coloris Nouveaux (1931).
