Ariadne. Robe du soir en velours broche de Bianchini. Print from the Gazette du Bon Ton.

Paris: 1921. Print. Lithograph print with pouchoir color, an intensive process that uses stencils to apply the color, which in this case is subdued, mostly black, gray and white, with pink highlighting her hair and pointy shoes. 7 1/4 x 9 1/2". The "Gazette du Bon Ton" was a leading fashion magazine published from 1912 to 1925, the highlight of which were 10 colored plates in each issue. The magazine signed exclusive contracts with seven of Paris's top couture houses (Cheruit, Doeuillet, Doucet, Paquin, Poiret, Redfern, and Worth) so that the designers' fashions were shown only in the pages of the Gazette. An annual subscription was 100 francs, the equivalent of over $400 today. Item #14097
