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 out for a walk, each wearing beautiful period clothing. The scene is delightful, with the little girl trying to catch a butterly with her net, she is wearing a floral blue dress, and a spring hat with feathers. The two gorgeous ladies walking with her are dressed in luxury, one wears a lavender purple bustle gown covered with tassels, the other wears a pink rose brown velvet costume with lace and velvet ribbons. Wearing gloves, one lady holds a bouquet of flowers, the other her fan. The detail is gorgeous.
 
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".
