This is an original watercolor or gouache created for a book by Jeanne Bouvier circa 1930-35.
Jeanne Bouvier (1865-1964) is a famous historical character and author of the Art Deco era, and you will discover her interesting life on the French Wikipedia.
The name of the chapter is written in pencil on the top right: "III Industrielle" as well as that of Jeanne.
The piece shows an array of Arum lilies, seen from different views in the traditional botanist manner, except this time, every view has been worked with the strong streamlined geometrisation of Art Deco.
This reconstruction of the flower in different shapes and degraded tones: magenta, blue, gray, purple, green, yellow and black is absolutely stunning!
This is an outstanding artwork, creative and elegant, and it will bring a touch of absolute chic to any decor!
