New York, NY, USALive Auction
Description: Artist: CHARLES LOUPOT (1892-1962) Size: 35 1/4 x 50 1/4 in./89.8 x 127.5 cm Säuberlin & Pfeiffer, Vevey Loupot's incredibly rare design for the Durable shirt company is a study in the understated and painterly use of color. The muted quality of the figure (who seems to be a woman in gentlemen's dress) is balanced by the boldness of the lettering. This image was also used for the J. G. Weith shirt shop in Lausanne (see Loupot/ Lyon, 47). This is the original version of the design.
