A small treasure of the French Art Deco times, circa 1925, from a series called "Art, Gout, Beaute" (Art, Taste, Beauty) with the most sophisticated dresses and shoes, all delicately hand watercolored!
The scene is set by the water, against a starry night, somewhere on the French Riviera, with a ship at anchor in the background and a palm tree on the right. The ladies' dresses are a dream come true, with elegant lengths and 1920s patterns, chiffon scarves and haute couture shoes.
This is both a perfection in Art Deco painting and in Art Deco fashion!
I must say this is one of the best series I have seen in years of browsing.
(Nicole la Bay believes an excellent artwork in a small size will always be more valuable than a larger work of lesser quality)
