Robe a Retroussis
This is an authentic, hand-coloured, signed pochoir fashion illustration (Plate 158)from the 1914 Journal des Dames et des Modes - a Parisian fashion journal published by Tom Antongini from June 1912 until August 1914. In her 1979 book "Parisian Fashion" Christina Nuzzi describes this Journal: "With its expensive layout, its society columns, its poetic texts, its colourful annotations and its fashion reports, it represented the last brilliant, refined, impartial and aestheticizing impulse of a happy and optimistic society occupying the centre of the stage in the period that has aptly been called the 'belle epoque'" H. 8.625in X W. 5.25in; H.21.9cm X W. 13.3cm
