Antique Hand Colored Engraving "La Mode Illustree" - Heloise Leloir - Paris, 1867
Héloise was the daughter of painter Alexandre Colin. She married artist Jean-Baptiste Auguste Leloir (1809-1892) and was the mother of Maurice Leloir, an artist who later became a film producer in Hollywood. Héloise Colin Leloir is listed in Benezit as a miniaturist and watercolorist, but is best known for her works in the fashion industry as an artist executing beautiful watercolors of the latest Paris gowns to be engraved and published in magazines with worldwide circulation.
"Leroy.Imp.a Paris" is written quite small under the painting. Then "La Mode Illustree" followed by Bureau du Journal, 56 rue Jacob Paris". The engraving is in Good to Very Good Condition. There appears to be a slight red smudge at the level of the wall sconce. Please remember that this is over 140 years old, and could benefit by a cleaning by a professional restorer. (If it was desired, I could get a price from a local restorer, which would not be included in this very low listed price).
Photographs are part of the description.
It is nicely and appropriately framed. The frame is in Very Good Condition.
Framed, it is 16 and 3/4 inches high x 13 and 3/4 inches wide. Sight dimensions are 12 x 9 inches.
