Petite Robe de Taffetas
This is a plate-signed hand-coloured pochoir illustration from the 1914 Journal des Dames et des Modes (Plate #183) - 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'" Lovely composition and charm in one of the last designs before The Great War. H. 8.625in X W. 5.625in; H. 21.9cm X W. 14.3cm
