JARDIN JALOUX is a silk picture,
which we introduce in the series "The yet unknown Hundertwasser”
14. January 2021
The edition "L'art en soie" with original works on silk by Matta, Hartung, Dewasne, Delvaux, Alechinsky, Agam and Hundertwasser was produced from 1979 to 1981 by Bucol, Lyon. Hundertwasser created his work in cooperation with Hilaire Colcombet.
A specialty of the production is the "velours au sabre"-technique: on the top layer of the satin one thread is cut on after the other with a narrow blade which is called "sabre". The surface, which is flat and matt after weaving, gets a velvety, shiny relief-like texture.
The collection was presented in 1982 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
