Serge Gladky A prominent figure in the Art Deco movement and a leading precursor of modern abstract art, Serge Gladky was a French architect, designer, and graphic artist, who was active during the 1920s and 30s. He was primarily renowned for his cubist style, and his decorative abstract prints were characterized by the creative, harmonious synthesis of geometric forms derived mostly from nature. Although inspired by natural motifs, his ornamental patterns were imaginative abstract interpretations rather than literal depictions of these subjects. The ingenuity and colours of his dynamic prints, achieved mainly through the pochoir process influenced the course of modern design.

Pochoir, French for stencil, defines a technique of print making popular in France in the early 1900s. It is a labor intensive process of applying brilliant color by hand using a series of cutout stencils. Each plate is an original print using up to thirty stencils in one image. All are hand colored and most are signed in the plate by the illustrator.
