Home for afternoon tea? "Si en rentrait gouter.." Gazette du Bon Ton c1920


by Brissaud, Pierre

Elegant mother and daughters in park. Antique print. Tailleur et robes d'enfants, de Jeanne Lanvin. Tailoring and children's clothes designed by Jeanne Lanvin.

Original antique print. Pierre Brissaud pochoir for the Gazette du Bon Ton (Journal of Good Style), published in Paris in 1920. The finest fashion illustrators of the day portrayed the latest fashions by prominent French designers. Pierre Brissaud (1885-1964) was one of four regular contributors for this exclusive periodical, and this pochoir provides a charming fashion narrative of the period.

Gazette de Bon Ton was published by Lucien Vogel in Paris between 1912 and 1925, 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 to describe the labour-intensive process of illustrating with a separate stencil cut for each successive layer of watercolour.

Size of page 24 x 19cm or 9.5 x 7.5 inches, with the usual slight age-discolouration of the page.
