Joan Miró. Rhythmic Figures or Woman and Birds (detail), 1934. Woven in Aubusson, FranceMarie Cuttoli a tissé de nombreuses tapisserieres d’artistes modernes. L’exposition, consacrée à l’étude de sa carrière, propose une nouvelle compréhension des relations entre l’art moderne international et les arts décoratifs. Elle confronte les peintures, les dessins et les tapisseries résultantes du travail de Marie Cuttoli.

In 1930s Paris, leading modern artists experimented with tapestry design, thanks to pioneering entrepreneur Marie Cuttoli (1879–1973). Cuttoli lived between Algeria and Paris and collected work by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, and Georges Braque. This exhibition traces her career, from her early work in fashion and interiors to her revival of the French tapestry industry. She commissioned the most celebrated artists of her time—Rouault, Léger, Picasso, Braque, Le Corbusier, Man Ray, and Miró, among others—to create designs for the historic tapestry workshops in Aubusson.
