P.A. Ekman was a multi-talented artist working in France during the mid-20th century. In addition to being a fine artist of some note, his practice encompassed decorative painting, illustration and mirror design. Not unlike his contemporary José María Sert, whose recent exhibition at the Petit Palais allowed the public to rediscover his work, Ekman’s original and striking decorative and fine art is resurfacing to take its rightful place in the history of art and design.
