This is a matted 1939 French art deco fashion print that we purchased in Paris. It is the original cover of a French magazine, "la Mode Pratique" that catered to the chic women of the time. Magazine cover art is difficult to find in excellent condition with the passage of time as it is highly susceptible to rips, stains, and discoloration. This image is wonderfully clean with strong color and contrasting tones. It features a highly stylized woman in day apparel. Note the styling and detailing: the stand-up collar, the cinched belted waistline, and the jacket buttons. Note too the fabulous accessories: the feather in the hat, the gloves, the stitching on the handbag. Also take note of the adoring dog, the promenading horses and the sports car. This image is perfect for today's fashionista! 9.25 x 11.75 inches in size. Comes matted in a neutral tone 16 x 20 inch custom mat reading for a standard size frame. Please allow time for custom matting.
