Jean Prouvé: Three Nomadic Structures
Vintage paperback coffee table book featuring a complex look at Jean Prouvé's oeuvre. By Columbia University, published in 2002. First edition, 39 pages.
"Jean Prouvé: Three Nomadic Structures is the first exhibition about Prouvé to be presented in America. While modest in scale, the show seeks to articulate several important themes in his work by focusing primarily on the years 1947-1953, a critical period when Prouvé presided over his own workshops in Maxéville, a suburb of Nancy, France. Through his modular structures, furniture, architectural fragments and photographs, the show explores architectural and historiographical questions, as well as preservation and presentation issues, concerning Prouvé's constructive systems."
