George Barbier

The Birth of Art Deco

Barbier, George

Book - 2008
George Barbier
The first singular study of one of the key artists of the Art Deco movement, George Barbier (1882-1932) was a fashion illustrator to the leading stylists (Poiret, Lanvin, Paquin, Vionnet) of his time, as well as a set and costume designer for the theater, Russian ballet, and music hall. Barbier's work is also noted in the world of advertising, wallpaper design, and jewelry for Cartier, in albums, as well as in almanacs and precious illustrated books. This volume, with essays by Italian and French authors, marks the rediscovery of a very successful artist of 1920s Paris who was strangely forgotten after his death in 1932.
