Abstract:Jules Vallée Guérin (1866-1946), arguably America's foremost "architectural decorator" of the early twentieth century, remains largely outside the canon of historical study. In an effort to revive interest in Guérin's art and luring hues, this dissertation addresses a sample of his art in three mediums: illustrations, decorative color schemes and mural painting. Across all art forms Guérin's color absolutely fascinated the public. Moreover, his work keenly impacted various early twentieth-century American art movements. His magazine and city plan illustrations effectively sold the City Beautiful Movement, while his all encompassing color schemes for San Francisco's Panama Pacific International Exposition and the Chicago Civic Opera, as well as his consultation on color for Chicago's Union Station, provided beauty-filled spaces for a broad cross-section of Americans. In addition, Guérin's murals of the twenties reflect their historical era and form a bridge between the murals of the American Renaissance (1876-1917) and the later wall painting of the 1930s. A symbiotic relationship exists between Guérin's murals and the buildings they ornament. In addition, the murals, which possess historical roots, mark a distinct shift to a more contemporary tone in American wall painting. Guérin's art also significantly broadens our understanding of American Orientalism. The artist's early depictions of sites in Egypt, the Holy Land and other areas in and around the Middle East played a paramount role in multiple later works by the artist. The similarity between the color of these foreign scenes and the hues of his American illustrations and color schemes provided viewers a visual link between these world regions. In addition, the inclusion of elements from Guérin's earlier foreign works within the later murals highlights the conflation between the American cityscape and the Middle East at this time. Implying a mythic sense of timelessness, Guérin's Orientalism served in part as a lure and also a diversion. This foreign inspired style quietly echoed the commercial marketplace and even underscored an interest in foreign business during the twenties.
