"Summer" is reflected in the rich, full-bodied color of this image.In the later 1920's, following the close of the great Parisian fashion illustration magazines, many of the illustrators who did not move to Vogue, Harper's, etc. produced small albums of fashion designs. Allier's "Les Quatre Saisons" published by Galerie Lutetia of Paris in 1928, was such an example. Allier's jewel-like charming innocence of "Summer" from this series is a late 1920's classic and as such appears on page 98 of Julian Robinson's excellent book "The Golden Age of Style" (Orbis Publishing, 1976) as well as on page 162 of his earlier work "The Brilliance of Art Deco".
