Original hand-coloured pochoir circa 1920 by Pierre Brissaud (1885-1964) for La Gazette du Bon Ton (Gazette of Good Style), in which some of the best fashion illustrators introduced the latest fine fashion to the public. Brissaud was one of four regular contributors for this exclusive periodical, and his pochoir provide charming fashion narratives of the period. These delightful fashion studies from Gazette du Bon Ton have been avidly collected since they were first published for Gazette de Bon Ton by Lucien Vogel in Paris between 1912 and 1925. Gazette du Bon ton was distributed by Condé Nast who later published Vogue magazine.

Pochoir, the French word for stencil, was adopted worldwide after this method was perfected by skilful artists in France. Pochoir was a labour-intensive process, with separate stencils cut for each application of watercolour.

Size of page 245 x 190mm or 9 5/8 x 7 1/2 inches, with the usual slight age-discolouration to the page.
