Paule Marrot was born in Bordeaux in 1902. At age fourteen she enrolled in Ecole Nationale Superericure des Arts Decoratifs in Paris, where she studied painting and printmaking under Eugene Morand.
She considered the symbolist painter Maurice Dentsher her mentor and main source of inspiration.
In 1928 she was awarded first prize for one of her textile designs. Marrot’s designs were brought to the attention of American Interior Designers in 1945 when Margret Owen became her representative in New York City. Much of her work is now housed in French museums and she is considered a huge asset to French design.
