Published in a French magazine the same year, this is an early French Art Deco print from a drawing by G K Benda.
It portrays Miss Musidora, obviously a famous singer/dancer of the time as "Champagne".
And champagne is definitely the theme of the artwork with a gushing swan feathers hat on the dancer's head, bubbles or grapes motifs on the blue curtains, and huge 3 dimensional grapes in the character's right hand.
Vine leaves also adorn her outfit.
Musidora wears a sjkater's skirt, VERY short for the time though her lega are covered with gray leggings.
Her eyes have the typical heavy duty makeup of the Art Deco times.
The piece is well composed, elegant and charming.
And it will bring a touch of sophistication to any decor.
In very good condition. No damage.
Total Length: 11 1/2"
Total Width: 8 3/8"
Will be shipped "REGISTERED" from Paris including online tracking, insurance and signature at delivery.
