George Barbier
Grand-Mere & Petite-Fille
Original etching and pochoir ("Grandmother & Grandaughter"), signed in the plate, 1920. From the large format album "Le Bonheur du Jour, ou Les Graces a la Mode" assembled and published by Jules Meynial, 1924 (Chez Meynial, pochoiriste; Paris. H. Reidel, printer/engraver; Paris). A Barbier tour-de-force, which caused great excitement at the time and is sought as a choice rarity today. This and the 15 other pochoirs in the unbound album "splendidly portray and encapsulate the 'roaring' character of those years with a charming dose of candor and dissoluteness, indolence and joie de vivre, down-to-earth naturalness and studied madness" (p.25, "Art Deco Prints" by Giuliano Ercoli, Publ. by Rizzoli International Publications Inc., New York, 1989.) On heavy cream laid paper. Dimensions: Plate Size - H:9.75in X W:13.5in; H:25.0cm X W:34.2cm; Overall Paper Size - H:12.25in X W:17.75in; H:31.0cm X W:45.0cm.
