"Spring" is given a joyous presentation in this refreshing 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 charmingly innocent, jewel-like rendition of Spring from this series is a late 1920's classic and as such appears on page 99 of Julian Robinson's excellent book "The Golden Age of Style" (Orbis Publishing, 1976).
