This is a hand coloured and plate-signed pochoir from Gazette du Bon Ton (July 1914 edition No.7, Plate 70). Rare and delicate, many of the 1914-18 Barbier images that were produced survived in smaller numbers owing to the WWI. Barbier's mood is wistful and sentimental, perhaps his antidote to the realities of the impending Great War.
