Obituary: New York Times, October 25th, 1975 Jean Pages, Muralist, Is Dead at 73; Decorated Many Noted Restaurants By George Dugan Jean Pages, illustrator and muralist who over the years decorated the interior of many of the city's leading restaurants, died at the Roosevelt Hospital after a long illness. He was 73 years old and lived at 29 East 69th Street and also maintained a home at St. Among the restaurants and supper clubs Mr. Pages decorated were the Côte Basque, the Malsonette at the St. Regis Hotel, the Rendezvous at the Plaza Hotel, Le Pavillon, La Caravelle, Le Manoir, Clos Normand, Le Mistral and La Comédie. Most recently, his work included La Rotisserie and Le Cygne restaurants. In 1969 he decorated the executive offices of Revlon in the General Motors Building and three years ago, in collaboration with his brother, Pierre, he decorated the Meridien in Paris and painted mural for the Campari factory in Puteaux, France. At the Côte Basque Mr. Pages collaborated with another noted designer, Bernard LaMotte, on the interior décor. Pages sought appropriate themes for his murals.
The Clos Normand depicts pastoral vignettes of Normandy. At Le Poulaller, chickens were the main theme.
Particularly striking is a scene from the Paris Opéra in which the chickens are garbed in human clothes, with the hens in jewels and the roosters in black tie. Pages was also often called on to execute decorations and murals in private homes.
His clients included Vincent Astor, William Weiss, Dorothy Holt, Charles LaBouchere and Countess Peggy Reventlow. Pages painted murals for the officers' club in Toul, France, and in 1943 in Aigiers he did murals for the Red Cross Club, the Club Interallier, the Club for Private Soldiers and the French Hospital. Born in Versailles on October 7, 1903, he attended the Lycée de Beatuvais until 1917 and studied architecture at the École Spéciale d'Architecture in Paris from 1919 to 1923. He came to the United States in 1927 under contract to do drawings and illustrations for the Condé Nast publications.His work appeared in Vogue until the outbreak of World War II. During the early years of the war he served with the French Army in France. In the spring of 1942 he was assigned to duty with the Allies in North Africa and two years later was attached as French liaison officer to the United States 83& Division in Normandy.
He remained with the division until after V-E Day, at which time he was attached to Supreme Allied Headquarters as an artist correspondent. He survived by his brothers, Jacques and Pierre. 100% Guaranteed to be as described. We ask for your patience and assure you we are acting as quickly as we can.
