I just love the Art Deco Period. I love everything about it.
The fashion, the furniture and the art. This painting was inspired
by the covers that George Barbier designed for Vogue Magazine
during the Art Deco Period.
This lovely lady sitting is the beauty of her floral wrap
with the gentlemen over her shoulder makes us wonder
who she will choose for the Ladies Choice?
George Barbier (1882 - 1932) was one of the great French illustrators of the early 20th century. Born in Nantes, France on October 10, 1882, Barbier was 29 years old when he mounted his first exhibition in 1911 and was subsequently swept to the forefront of his profession with commissions to design theatre and ballet costumes, to illustrate books, and to produce Haute couture fashion illustrations.
