Exceptional in quality, this rare larger format hand colored French Fashion Lithograph is precious, the colors lush and deep. From disbound copies of La Gazette Rose Illustree, Paris, 1882, a celebrated Parisian fashion publication used by seamstresses to copy the latest in dress trends for their luxury clientele around the world. Bought in Paris.

Signed by Jules David, a prominent French painter and lithographer, who introduced naturalistic situations to fashion illustration. Colored with bright water colors, this print shows a group of young girls, each wearing beautiful period clothing. The dresses or coats in pink brown velvet and lace, a darling Scottish Plaid ensemble in green with a bright red sash {this could also be a young boy!}, a dove grey coat, a red velvet dress, and another grey dress. Then there are the stunning hats! One child has a hoop, the detail is gorgeous, their elegant mother looks fetching in her blue floral bustled gown, she is reading a book, or tyring to!  Their darling little dog wants to play too!
 
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. Perfect to frame, loves the company of others. Display in a grouping, these rare larger size feminine prints make a stunning statement! Measures 14-1/4" x 10-1/2".
