「History」
These prints are from the Journal des Dames et des Modes, Costumes Parisiens. These pochoir illustrations were published from 1912-1914. This publication was designed to appeal to the elite of Paris, with high fashion plates and chatty articles on all aspects of life for the privielaged.

Here in the so called "forgotten years" of the 1910's we see the art that evokes the whole gamut of that fabulously creative era in France, from the Impressionists and the Fauves to the Cubists, Belle Epoque, Art Nouveau & Deco periods.

「Artist」
George Barbier was one of the most prolific and sought after artists of his generation. Not only did he contribute countless illustrations to the most influential fashion magazines of the time, he also produced jewelry, glass, and wallpaper designs, as well as the iconic Cartier panther. His theatrical designs for Rudolph Valentino's film Monsieur Beaucaire (1924) and the Josephine Baker revue Paris Shakes held at the Casino de Paris (1931) were admired for their imaginative evocation of a particular time and place.

The 18th century fascination for Chinoiserie in Europe was followed by Japonisme in the 19th century. Barbier, a collector of Japanese ukiyo-e prints, transformed the layouts and themes for use in his fashion illustrations. Their influence can be seen in the flat, oblique angles of the simplified landscapes, floral ornament, and in the clothing.

At the beginning of the 20th century, a new type of woman shocked those with conventional tastes. These women went to the beach, played sports, drove cars, and took trips. They were independent, self-confident, and wore modern fashions with panache. Barbier was drawn to this new breed of women, and his illustrations act as a record of their lifestyle.
