Georges de Feure

French painter and designer. De Feure worked as an actor, a costumier and then as an interior decorator. He also painted watercolours and oils, often of delicate women in a sensuous Symbolist style that illustrates the links between Symbolism and Art Nouveau. De Feure first exhibited furniture in Paris in 1896 and began working for Siegfried Bing in 1899. in 1900 he designed elements of Bing’s pavilion for the 1900 Paris Universal Exposition, where his work was praised for its French refinement. De Feure continued to design commercially until the outbreak of World War 1 in 1914.
