This is a large format French fashion print. It is on heavy stock paper and was probably used originally for display purposes. It is a Mid-Century fashion plate that was a supplement in a portfolio of tailored suits from the winter of 1948-49. It showcases the latest season of fashion for the woman who wanted chic styles with a fully accessorized look. Note the hats, purse, gloves! It also has small details of rear views as well. The fashion plate has a wonderful painterly quality. It is illustrated by a well accomplished artist and fashion illustrator, Marcel Jacques Hemjic. Hemjic illustrated both men's and women's fashion designs and was known for his tailoring lithographs. He also designed large posters as well and his work is collectible. This image is signed by the artist; it is 10 ½ x 14 ½ inches in size and in pristine condition. See companion pieces offered in our shop.
