by Thayaht

Lady's Golf Outfit designed by Madeleine Vionnet. 

Original 1924 pochoir fashion plate by Thayaht, (pseudonym for futurist Italian artist and designer Ernesto Michahelles (1893-1959)), for La Gazette du Bon Ton (Journal of Good Style).   

Between 1919 and 1925 Thayaht worked in Paris with couturier Madeleine Vionnet, and introduced her fashion to the public in the exclusive publication, Gazette du Bon Ton, with beautiful hand-coloured pochoir in his distinctive style. Thayaht presented fashion within swirling intersecting lines, suggestive of energy and movement, somewhat similar to cubist representation. This Thayaht pochoir of a lady golfer is one of his finest.   

Pochoir (French for stencil) were hand-coloured by skilful application of gouache and watercolour through separate stencils that were cut for each colour. The pochoir for the exclusive publication, Gazette du Bon Ton, are some of the finest pochoir ever done - which is why the French word has been adopted internationally for these beautiful fashion studies that introduced couturiers' designs to the public.

Size approximately 24 x 19cm or 9.5 x 7.5 inches
