Dominique is the common name designating two artists who collaborated so closely with one another since 1920, that we cannot dissociate their respective works and contributions. Marcel Genévrière was born in Rouen, on July 2, 1885. After studying literature, he dedicated himself to journalism and worked for ten years as an art critic for "Comcedia," "Gil Blas" "Intransigeant" and "Paris Magazine.” In 1920, he founded, together with André Domin, the firm "Dominique." André Domin was born in Caen, on July 8, 1883.
Starting with the 1925 Salon du Palais des Ambassades, Dominique participated in all the major exhibitions. It partook regularly in the Salons des Artistes décorateurs: in 1935 in Brussels (award), in 1937, with different exhibition pavilions: shipping, Normandy, private architecture, decorators and furniture (out of the competition).
Dominique realized important collections of furniture in France and abroad. Since 1933, it was employed by the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique to furnish ocean liners. The state entrusted Dominique with the decoration of the Landscape Exhibition at the Elysée Palace and it received numerous commissions from Mobilier National.
