About This Item

[Paris?]: Baronne de Bondeli, 1969. Small folio (37 x 27 cm). Cream cardstock portfolio inside blue-grey portfolio-style slipcase, contents loose as issued; 90 pp. Some sunning to slipcase, excellent overall condition. Emilio Terry (Emilio Rene Terry y Sánchez, 1890-1969) was a Cuban-Irish architect, interior designer, and landscape designer. He created and designed houses, furniture, tapestries, gardens, and art objects in a neo-classical and baroque-influenced style he created which he named the "Louis XVII style". This was an imaginary style influenced by historical examples such as Ledoux or Palladio.

Terry's work included decoration of an apartment intended for Princess Grace, design of the gardens around Château d'Haroué for the Beauvau-Craon family, and the interior design of the Château de Groussay at Montfort-l'Amaury for multi-millionaire Carlos de Beistegui.

This portfolio is a collection of works of Emilio Terry, compiled "par un ami pour ses amis". It opens with a five-page introduction by Alfred Marie. The first section contains plans and drawings for various sizes and shapes of homes, including various façades and floor plans. The homes contains rooms such as bedrooms, libraries, offices, kitchens, salons, and dressing rooms. These plans date to circa 1942 and 1943.

The second section features smaller drawings of façades and floor plans, for designs which date to circa 1946 and 1947. The following sections are titled "Maisons...", "Architectures de fantaisie", "Fêtes et décors", and "Dessins d'ornements", and contain, along with numerous illustrations, an essay "Qu'est-ce qu'une maison" by André Fermigier. There are several aquatints from original watercolors which preface the various sections.

The colophon page lists the friends of Terry who helped compile this portfolio: André Fermigier, Jean Fournier, Gilbert Grou-Radenez, Simon Hantaï, Henri Jonquières, Alfred Marie, and Marcel Nahmais, with technical assistance from Gabriel Coët, Maurice Beaufumé, Robert Blanchet, Kirsten Vinding, and Bernard Duval. The work was developed not for commercial production, and was completed on July 18, 1969.

Scarce; as of August 2023, OCLC locates only four holdings of this portfolio in North America.
