This wonderful hand colored engraving of two women, entitled "La Mode Illustree" dated 1867, by Heloise Leloir. One of the best documented and most prolific fashion artists in France during the middle of the nineteenth century was Héloise Colin Leloir. She, along with her two sisters, Anais Toudouze and Laure Noel, together with their rival Jules David, were skillful in showing the requisite dress detail in conventional evocative
settings.

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.
