Paule Vézelay: Living Lines

Simon Grant

The art of Paule Vé zelay (1892-1984), celebrated in this groundbreaking publication, is remarkable in its breadth. Over her long career she created an extraordinarily diverse output encompassing painting, collage, sculpture, constructions, illustration, textiles, photography, poetry, prose, critical writing and even a film script. This publication, which includes original research and previously unpublished works, extends our understanding, and appreciation of, this important British artist. Setting out to bring this bold and accomplished artist to new audiences, this important publication focuses primarily on Vé zelay's early years in Paris from the 1920s through to 1939, during which time her work moved from figuration to abstraction, for which she would become best known. The book also brings to light, for the first time in detail, her little-known period as a successful designer of textiles.
