Lot Essay

The design of these chairs can be closely related to a similar model, with sweeping legs and bold central splat, which Gaillard exhibited at La Sociéte Nationale des Beaux-Arts in 1903-1904. Both can be compared to a chair he designed in 1899, that was then shown at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900, which Gaillard later said was the very first chair he designed for Bing’s gallery ‘L’Art Nouveau’.
