The Sonnabend Gallery is holding the first major retrospective of the work of Jean Royere (1902-1981). The exhibition is curated by two of the leading authorities on 20th Century design, Patrick Seguin and Jacques Lacoste.The schematic design of the exhibition has been entrusted to the noted architect and designer India Mahdavi, who says unlike the more austere designs of his contemporaries, Royere brought great humor to his work. We wanted to celebrate this fun, playful, eclectic spirit.
