Description: MAURICE LAURO (1878-?) TROUVILLE. 1928.
40 1/2x28 1/2 inches, 103x72 1/2 cm. Devambez, Paris.
Condition B / B+: repaired tear at upper edge into central image; repaired tears, restored losses and overpainting in margins and image; light foxing in text; toned.
An engaging Art Deco rendition of a bustling, fashionable day on Trouville's boardwalk, filled with style, beauty, glamour, color and patterns to the point that it "seems to encapsulate the essence of bright young thingery" (Hillier, p. 148). Executed in the manner of the fashionable Art Deco magazines of the era (Lauro was a magazine illustrator who specialized in fashion), this graceful, joyful and elegant celebration of the happy-go-lucky Roaring Twenties speaks to Lauro's mastery of his craft. Trouville / Deauville p. 63, Hillier p. 148 (var), Affiches Art Deco p. 103.
