Burkhalter, Jean; Saudé, Jean From "Jean Burkhalter: Soixante-dix motifs décoratifs en dix-huit planches." This is Album No. 2 in the two-part series "Collection 'Décors et Couleurs,'" in which Jean Saudé translated Burkhalter's designs into Pochoir. These pochoirs are typical of the Art Deco style, blending old European design traditions with the freshness of the avant-garde movement. "Pochoir" (French for "stencil") is a type of screen printing in which the outlines of the design are produced first, then bright color is hand-applied through a series of stencils. Pochoir in the Art Deco style was used by many French artists of the 1920s and early 1930s, including Picasso, Leger, and Seguy. The Pochoir technique created prints of intense color which were used in fashion, patterns, wallpaper, architectural design, and book illustration.Burkhalter worked in many of the applied and fine arts as an architect, decorator, draftsman, creator of fabrics, designer of cutlery and silverware, painter of oils and frescoes, and professor of pictorial composition. Saudé was famous for his work in Pochoir. In 1925 he published "Traité d’enluminure d’art au Pochoir," a guide to the Pochoir technique. Saudé produced prints for a number of artists including George Barbier.
