Marc Saint Saëns (1903-1979) was an influential French expressionist painter and tapestry artist responsible in part for the renaissance and rebirth of French tapestry production in the 20th century. Along with Jean Lurçat and Jean Picart Le Doux, Saint-Saëns established the Association of Cartoon Painters for Tapestry. This unique group used gouache to paint cartoons for tapestry production resulting in the fluid and uniquely Parisian lines associated with Saint-Saëns and his best known tapestry works like Thésée and the Minotaur. During his career, Marc Saint-Saëns created an enormous range of designs with abstract, surrealist and pictorial themes, which have been made into carpets, tapestries and public murals.
