About the artist

Founded in 1872 by Ernest Vibert and Alfred Perret, this decoration company opened in Paris, 33 rue du Quatre Septembre "La Maison des Bambous" [House of the Bamboos] offered a large choice of pieces of furniture made out of solid and elegant bamboos, often decorated with lacquer. The Maison created exotic decorations in order to furnish conservatories, winter gardens and secondaries houses. IT first created pastiches in the Chinese style before trading Asian antiques under the impulse of Ernest's son, Georges Vibert. In 1912, the Maison des Bambous became Perret - Vibert's Gallery, very well known among the amateur of Asian art. Debussy and Ravel were among the gallery's customers. Its influence is international, with the exhibition of their most striking works at the World Fairs. The Maison won two silver medals in 1889 and has to deal with extravagant orders from rich customers. Perret - Vibert Gallery is very much under the influence of exoticism and the Japanese style, but also very much innovative as far as avant-garde is concerned with creations anchored in the New Art movement.
