Robes de Promenade by Armand Vallee
This is a plate-signed hand-coloured pochoir illustration from the 1913 Journal des Dames et des Modes (Plate #119) - a Parisian haute couture journal containing these(unbound) artworks 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'" Fabulous, dense colouration; striking imagery H. 8.625in X W. 5.625in; H. 21.9cm X W. 14.3cm
