 PIERRE-PAUL MONTAGNAC (1883-1961)

Born in Saint-Denis, France, Pierre-Paul Montagnac was equally talented as a designer and a fine artist. He was educated in both disciplines, studying under Eugene Carriere as well as at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere, both in Paris. Montagnac's inaugural exhibition was at the 1912 Paris Salons -- and at the 1920 Salon d'Automne he received a traveling scholarship. In 1918 he had begun working in the firm of Andre Mare (later Süe et Mare) and from 1922 he collaborated with Maurice Dufrene at La Maitrise, the famed design studio at Galeries Lafayette. Beginning in 1921 he exhibited at the salons of la Societe des Artistes Decorateurs, Salon des Architectes Modernes, and internationally in Barcelona and Leipzig. He also was commissioned by the French government to design suites on the grand French oceanliners, l'Atlantique, Normandie and Pasteur. At the world-renowned 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes he designed furniture for the Grand Salon of the French Embassy. He served as President of the SAD from 1930 - 1938 and was pivotal in the organization and participation in their pavilion at Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne in 1937.
