A 1920 pochoir-printed plate from the Paris fashion magazine, Gazette du Bon Ton. The magazine was published from 1912-1925 and featured exquisitely printed illustrations of the latest fashions using the pochoir printing process, in which stencils were created for the various colors and the plates hand-painted. This dramatic scene, "the death of love," is illustrated by the French designer Charles Martin. Item #1012.
Condition: Very Good, age toning to paper; corners lightly bumped and 1/8" closed tear at bottom middle.
