George Barbier
Au Revoir
Original etching and pochoir, 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. 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.) One of Barbier's most famous images, on heavy cream laid paper with silver ink highlights. 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.
