Mont’s designs set him apart as a singular figure of the American mid-century. Straddling the overlapping worlds of Art Deco, Hollywood Regency, and Mid- century Modern, he conformed to and defied all of them. Today, the painstaking skill in the executions of his lacquers and metal leaf makes his work more desirable than ever. From sandblasting to cerusing, from lacquering to gilding, Mont was known to be an obsessive perfectionist in all.
