Click image for detail

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 two ladies and a little girl, each wearing beautiful period clothing, obviously at a grand occasion, a ball or special party. The scene is delightful, with the little girl dressed in her finest red velvet and lace dress, she is holding a rose bouquet, and oh! her little red boots!  The two ladies are a vision, one in a French white lace gown, the other in a gown embellished with silk rose flowers, they are both holding their fans.
 
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".
