About the Author

Claud Cecil Gurney is a collector of art, porcelain, and furniture with a love of chinoiserie and Chinese style. He founded the company nearly thirty years ago, setting up a studio in China that works with local artisans and painters to create patterns drawing on traditional designs.


"While every good interior tells a story, de Gournay wallpapers and textiles actually tell stories. The venerable French firm has long been celebrated for its patterns that include chinoiserie, sumptuous flora and birdlife, as well as its historical patterns, notably nineteenth-century pastoral scenes and exuberant Brazilian landscapes, as well as abstracts. The story of these stories is well recounted here." —MILIEU MAGAZINE

"Renowned for its elegant hand-painted wallpapers and textiles, de Gournay creates some of the most beautiful interiors in the world." —LOVE HAPPENS 

"The hand-painted wall coverings, fabric, and porcelain coming out of Claud Cecil Gurney's studio in China since 1984 have captivated industry darlings like Michael S. Smith, Miles Redd, India Mahdavi, Alessandra Branca, Kelly Wearstler, and Irakli Zaria along the way. In De Gournay: Hand-Painted Interiors, the sheer beauty of the works—largely influenced by Art Deco and Art Nouveau, 18th- and 19th-century chinoiserie papers hailing from original Chinese sources as well as European copies, and, more recently, Japanese Edo period paintings—are the showpiece. Most compelling of all? The re-creations of the traditional craft are exacting, using techniques that De Gournay says have remained the same for hundreds of years." —ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST.COM
