"A rare ladies’ fashion illustration from the renowned Parisian fashion journal, La Gazette du Bon Ton (which translates as The Magazine of Good Taste). From the beginning of the publication to its end, La Gazette featured clothing designed by the best couturiers and depicted by the best illustrators working in Paris during the Art Deco period. Published intermittently in Paris from 1912 to 1925 with interruptions due to World War One, La Gazette is the most famous and beautifully produced fashion periodical of its time. Created through the employment of the pochoir technique, the sumptuous fashion plates, in addition to offering beautiful works of illustration, give viewers a peek into the development of art, fashion, and design at a time when society was changing significantly and rapidly. The illustrations testify as to how trends and movements within the fine arts, such as Orientalism, Cubism, Futurism, and Abstract art, had a profound influence on the decorative arts during this time." (Pratt Institute Fashion Plate Collection)

Pochoir, French for stencil, defines a technique of print making popular in France in the early 1900s. It is a labor intensive process of applying brilliant color by hand using a series of cutout stencils. Each plate is an original print using up to thirty stencils in one image. All are hand colored and most are signed in the plate by the illustrator.
