Have you been good? "As-tu Ete Sage? Bon Ton pochoir c1919

by Brissaud, Pierre

Mother in evening gown by Jeanne Lanvin, c1919. Robe du soir et robe d'enfant de Jeanne Lanvin. (Evening gown & child's dress by Jeanne Lanvin.)

Original antique print. Hand-coloured pochoir by Pierre Brissaud (1885-1964) for the Gazette du Bon Ton (Journal of Good Style), published in Paris in 1919. Brissaud was one of four regular contributors for this exclusive periodical, and this pochoir provides a charming fashion narrative of the period. The finest fashion illustrators of the day portrayed the latest fashions by prominent French designers in this Gazette.

Gazette de Bon Ton was published by Lucien Vogel in Paris between 1912 and 1925 (with a break during World War I), and distributed by Condé Nast. The portrayal of fashion by the pochoir method was perfected by skilful artists in France, and pochoir, the French word for stencil, has been adopted worldwide since that time. Pochoir was a labour-intensive process, with a separate stencil cut for each successive application of watercolour.
