Georges Lepape
Les Adieux
Original pochoir from the rare series "The War Years, 1914-1919" published as a special edition of Modes et Manieres d'Aujourd'hui (1920) Plate No. IV. Each Plate was dated according to the "War Year" depicted and each was paired with a poem by Henry Jacques. Here it is 1915, the war just underway, and the fashionable Miss is dogged by sadness, fear and a sense of helplessness, having just bid her lover "Adieux". A variation of this Lepape image appeared on the cover of the Oct.15,1916 American Vogue Magazine. Approx. dimensions: H.11.0in X W.7.25in; H.27.9cm X W.18.4cm
