Jean Prouve: Oeuvre Complete/Complete Works

by Peter Sulzer

Two volumes which present, in splendid imagery and fascinating text, the work of one of the greatest architects of the 20th century. The author, personally acquainted with Jean Prouve as a friend, here delivers a complete, profound account not only of the artist's stunning and innovative styles and inventions, compiling them into a catalog which accurately covers two periods of his career, but also some conversations of great interest with the artist as only one who authentically knew the architect could present. The two volumes, the first of a four-volume catalog of the architect's works, each cover a specific period in the life and career of the artist: the first volume gathers the works from 1917 to 1933, the first creative phase, while the second covers a very important, productive phase of his career. A remarkable assemblage of photographs, sketches, construction plans, as well as the conversations with the architect which provides with a valuable oral archive, this catalogue raisonne will open the world of Jean Prouve in a hitherto unequalled manner. 239 (vol 1) + 352 (vol 2) pages. 9.75 x 12 inches.

Two volumes of four. Lavishly illustrated with B&W photographs, as well as sketches, construction plans and patents. Text in French with integral English translation.
