Exquisite lithograph print from the French Couturier Fashion magazine La Femme Chic printed in Paris in the early 1900's. For the Paris elite, it was an influential magazine defining new trends in fashion during the the early part of the century. Published between 1916 - 1939. Jolie deshabille Creation Elise Poret is a beauty. Divine in a soft shade of Pink silk, with pleating and fagoting details, the perfect piece for Madame to wear for breakfast.
This collectable fashion plate was colored completely by hand in pink, lavender, brown and dove grey. Executed by some of the most prominent French artists, each is an original work of art, this is signed Souchel. To be expected in prints of this age, there may be a few characteristic areas of foxing etc., this print has some loss to both top corners as shown, but is such a beautiful image I could not resist her. Perfect to frame, your mat can cover the top.
