Emile-Allain Séguy

French 🇫🇷 1877 - 1951

Emile-Allain Séguy was a French artist who worked in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles. He mostly designed patterns and prints that were influenced by the natural world. He designed the prints for Papillons (1925), a publication commissioned by textile manufacturer F. Schumacher & Co. These prints are his most well known works, and feature decorative prints of butterflies.

Not much is known about Emile-Allain Séguy, and we think it may be because he is often confused with Eugène Séguy, who was another illustrator working around the same time.
