Four Signed Original Costume Designs. George Barbier.

Four Signed Original Costume Designs

1925. A set of four original costume drawings in pen, ink, and gouache for a 1925 Opera Gaston production. Each is signed "George Barbier" and three are also dated "1925." The four exquisite illustrations depict two women and two men in period 19th century costumes. The two women are dressed in gorgeous full gowns. One is in a white ball gown with a multicolored floral design. The other woman is in a daytime costume, with a dark blue full-length shawl and a charming bonnet. The two men are dressed in corresponding attire - one in evening dress and one in a long fur trimmed coat wearing a top hat. Each of the illustrations has handwritten notes on their backs, primarily in pencil, that seem to refer to characters and stage information. Each is numbered with Barbier's name and their numbers - 4, 13, 17, and 20. The drawings are in near fine condition with the slightest aging to paper borders. They are on sheets of paper measuring 8.5 x 10.26 inches. The figures are about 8.5 inches high.The French artist George Barbier (1882-1932) was one of the most sophisticated and prolific illustrators and designers of his era. His Art Deco creations using the techniques of pochoir printing were both modern and classic, highly stylized, and extremely colorful. He became extremely popular after his first exhibition at the age of twenty-nine, and was widely sought after to design theater and ballet costumes, illustrate books, and most notably to produce haute couture fashion illustrations. He was somewhat forgotten after his early death at age fifty, but there has been strong renewed interest in his work in recent years. This began with an exhibition at the Fortuny Museum in Venice in 2008, "George Barbier: The Birth of Art Deco," which was the first posthumous exhibition of his work. ORIG/080516.

Original Signed Greek Costume Drawings. George Barbier.

Original Signed Greek Costume Drawings

A set of four original drawings in pen, ink, and gouache for an amateur theater production in Paris each signed by Barbier.The French artist George Barbier (1882-1932) was one of the most sophisticated and prolific illustrators and designers of his era. His Art Deco creations using the techniques of pochoir printing were both modern and classic, highly stylized, and extremely colorful. He became extremely popular after his first exhibition at the age of twenty-nine, and was widely sought after to design theater and ballet costumes, illustrate books, and most notably to produce haute couture fashion illustrations. He was somewhat forgotten after his early death at age fifty, but there has been strong renewed interest in his work in recent years. These charming drawings were done early in Barbier’s career when his style wasn’t yet fully matured. Early work by well known artists is important; although, less valuable. Three of the illustrations are full length figures, two of bearded men and one young boy shown dancing. The fourth drawing depicts the heads of two men and two women, labeled A, B, C, and D. All are in near fine condition, although along the top of the back of each sheet of paper is a glue remnant where once mounted on something. 7.25 x 10.25 inches. ORIG/080816.

Pochoir illustration from L'eventail et Fourrure chez Paquin (Feather and Fur at Paquin)

1911. The French artist George Barbier (1882-1932) was one of the most sophisticated and prolific illustrators and designers of his era. His Art Deco creations using the techniques of pochoir printing were both modern and classic, highly stylized, and extremely colorful. He became extremely popular after his first exhibition at the age of twenty-nine, and was widely sought after to design theater and ballet costumes, illustrate books, and most notably to produce haute couture fashion illustrations. He was somewhat forgotten after his early death at age fifty, but there has been strong renewed interest in his work in recent years. This beautiful pochoir illustration is a Greek fan composition that had appeared in an album done for the French fashion designer, Jeanne Paquin, who was the first woman to head a major Parisian fashion house. The album, limited to 300 copies, comprised seven plates done by Paul Iribe, Georges Lepape, and Barbier. Of the seven plates this was the only one by Barbier. It is a classical image of Pan playing his pan-pipes, and a dancer and a couple in a woods. The design and colors are quintessential Barbier, with its stylized design and deeply rich colors. There is a small black and white drawing of Pan on the lower right border. Printed on a 13.5 x 17.5 sheet. A few light spots on the white borders otherwise in near fine condition. ORIG/072916.

The play is a humorous one that shows the futility of war and deals comedically with the hypocrisies of human nature.The black and white cover design is by Aubrey Beardsley, who was twenty-two at the time. The design was first used for a color lithograph poster advertising the theatre that was described as a "sensation." The program lists the casts and scene location for each production on the two interior pages. The back of the program has a collection of advertisements for various products. The program is slightly soiled and has a vertical crease where folded. There are two punched holes on the inner margin, otherwise in very good condition for such an ephemeral item.
