Ligne Blanche Paris

An enchanting selection of plates inspired by pieces in MoMA's vast collection.

 

Twentieth Century Art for Your Table

By Mary Elizabeth Collins 


 

If you like to bring an artistic touch to your home decor, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City (MoMA) has a wonderful design store where you can find fun reproductions of some of the pieces contained in the illustrious institution’s private collection. The store also features pieces produced by the French firm Ligne Blanche. 

The Parisian company sells adorable plates—manufactured by the renowned porcelain label Limoges—that can be used for decoration or as china for special occasions. They feature licensed works by some the most important contemporary artists. But if you are not planning to visit the Big Apple shortly, these delicate items are also available on the firm’s website: ligneblancheparis.com.


1- Basquiat -untitled 
2- Georg Baselitz -Eine Tochter Sowjetkirgisiens Clara
3- GILBERT & GEORGE- FLIGHT
4- HARING- UNTITLED


Ligne Blanche Paris’ selection will delight all art lovers. After all, these plates remind us—at the dinner or coffee tables—of the precious essence of the arts. Some of the most successful items are representations of works by eleven adored contemporary artists, including outcast Jean-Michel Basquiat’s Eyes & Eggs—a collaboration with Andy Warhol with whom he had a close friendship.

Also available,
Keith Haring’s reproduction of his iconic Black & White piece. Haring—artist and activist—remains one of the major representatives of the 1980's New York’s street art scene, revered by an endless list of contemporary creators.

 


1- MAGRITTE- LA GRAND GUERRE
2- MAPLETHORPE- POPPY 
3- KATZ- JESSICA 
4- ANDY WARHOL- PURPLE MARILYN 

Nothing can be more spectacular than Andy Warhol´s images of Marilyn Monroe, or Mapplethorpe’s sublime renditions of flowers, as well as a large-format reproduction of  Eine Tochter Sowjetkirgisiens – Clara by Georg Baselitz, the German postmodern or neo-expressionist painter, depending on what side of the Atlantic you find yourself.

We particularly love the piece by the British conceptual, performance and body artists Gilbert Proesch and George Passmore (Gilbert & George), as well as Alex Katz’s captivating female portraits Jessica and Sara Mearns. If you need an even larger selection, take a look at Robert Longo’s reproduction of Study for Tiger Head 2.

This remarkable collection also features works by American artist Jack Pierson, world famous for his word sculptures made with multiple materials that turn into edgy murals such as The Golden Years, and McDonald Ltd, a piece by Tom Sachs.

This ensemble wouldn’t be complete without modernist masterpieces by Belgian surrealist painter Rene Magritte, whose works La Reconnaissance Infinie, La Grande Guerre, and Golconde enhance this striking collection of plates presented by Ligne Blanche Paris.
