This is an original French vintage advertisement print for Lucien Lelong perfume that dates to 1944. It originally appeared in a mid-century haute couture fashion magazine that catered to the most chic women of the time. It is illustrated by Rene Gruau, a well–known and highly collectible French illustrator who is recognized internationally for his highly stylized fashion illustration and advertising art. This is a RARE image to find as it had limited circulation and has become difficult to find with the passage of time. The image features a woman in a lush veil layered shawl enraptured with the fragrance of her latest Lucien Lelong perfume. This print is strong and bold; it is a prime example of French style, flair, and pizzazz in advertising art. It would work well in a bathroom, dressing room or bedroom as it is a fun and alluring print. It is signed by Gruau with his iconic signature. The vintage print is 8.5 x 11 inches in size. It is original to 1944 and NOT a recent reproduction. It is in A+ condition and is custom matted in a neutral 16 x 20 inch mat and works perfectly in a standard size frame.
