  • Catalogue Essay

    Please note that the present lot is being sold together with a vanity, chair, and wastebasket and that Limone does not recognize the paper-covered furniture, sold here alongside "Tapisserie rouge," as his original work.

    Faced with the task of renovating and re-decorating a Palm Beach home, Peter Marino enlisted the help of French artist Guy Limone to re-imagine the vestibule of the first-floor powder room. Limone's solution was to cover the walls and ceiling, as well as the present group of furniture, with photocopies of his original collages. According to Limone, "My work is art, but it also has a decorative component. I think Peter likes that ambiguity."
