Exquisite color plate from the French Couturier Fashion magazine LA FEMME CHIC, printed in Paris, France in the very early 1900's. Marketed toward the Paris elite, La Femme Chic, along with several others, was an influential magazine defining new trends in fashion during the the early part of the century. It was published between 1916 - 1939. Elegant "Creation de la M. Paquin" is a beauty! Jeanne Paquin was the first major female couturier in France. A stunning design, made of red velvet with fur embellishments, ornate passementerie and that amazing hat! This artwork was signed by the artist.
Elegance, style and on the brink of the Roaring Twenties, this gorgeous and very collectable fashion plate was colored completely by hand in colors of red, gold, apricot, black and dove grey. Executed by some of the most prominent French artists, each is an original work of art. To be expected in prints of this age, there may be a few characteristic areas of foxing etc., this print is in beautiful antique condition. A little darker than some of the others acquired in France, this is an earlier one, from right around 1916. Perfect to frame, loves the company of others. Display in a grouping, these feminine prints make a stunning statement! Print measures: 14-1/4" x 10-3/4".
