The Interview with Philippe Garner | 20th Century Decorative Art and Design | Interview | Christie's
When Philippe Garner started collecting, in his early 20s, he was drawn to the styles of the early 20th century, but without yet having determined the shape of the collection. He very rapidly came to the realisation that it somehow wasn’t the decorative aspects of the arts of this period that appealed to him, but an underlining sense of purpose and pursuit of clarity on the part of the designers that expressed itself in a new purity of form. There is a rich intellectual as well as aesthetic narrative within the collection.
