This is a set of 2 mid-century French fashion designs. They originally appeared in a French haute couture fashion magazine that dates to 1946. They are NOT recent reproduction prints. They feature evening gowns by leading French couturiers and are illustrated and signed by Rene Gruau. Gruau was one of the leading fashion illustrators of the 20th century. His work is passionate, stunning and explosive. And these prints are all that and more. Gruau’s work is highly regarded, recognizable and collectible. Note the characteristic styling of Gruau: strong graphic design details in the frames, the "stepping out" of the image, the bold contrasting colors especially against the black background, the pose of the models. His work makes a statement; it is dynamic and compelling. Perfect for today's fashionista. Excellent, clean condition. 7.5 x 11.5 inches in size; comes mated in white 16 x 20 inch mats ready for standard size frames. You are purchasing a set of 2 matted mid-century fashion prints.
