    Mistinguett en Maillot Noir.

    Lot 320: Mistinguett en Maillot Noir.

    Auction Date: Jul 20, 2021

    Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 8 1/4 x 11 in./21 x 28 cm PRINTER: DESCRIPTION: Gesmar designed thousands of costumes for Mistinguett, but this is certainly one of the sexiest garments he envisioned. He’s drawn the cabaret star all lithe and leggy with flirtatious rosy cheeks and red nails to match. But while this drawing was titled “Mistinguett in a Black Swimsuit,” it could be argued that this is, in fact, a negligee—notice the lacy details on her thighs. Tres risqué!

    Maurice Chevalier. 1917.

    Lot 318: Maurice Chevalier. 1917.

    Auction Date: Jul 20, 2021

    Estimate: $1,700 - $2,000

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 46 1/2 x 63 1/4 in./118.2 x 160.6 cm PRINTER: Imp. Réunies, Lyon DESCRIPTION: Chevalier is 29 years old in this design, but Gesmar shows him with the blush of youth, which is perhaps more appropriate for the artist—he designed this at the tender age of 17. Or perhaps Chevalier is blushing because this poster is for his inaugural revue at the Casino de Paris in December of 1917, where he performed with his partner at the time, Mistinguett (Gesmar made her a separate poster for the event; see PAI-LXVII, 104).

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 47 x 62 3/4 in./119.4 x 159.4 cm PRINTER: Imp. H. Chachoin, Paris DESCRIPTION: Ooh, what is that you're smoking, Mistinguett? One of the rarest of Gesmar’s designs for the cabaret star, this image shows her flirtatiously smoking a pearl-encrusted pipe, glancing coyly—or is that wearily?—over her shoulder. She's shown in the "Bonjour Paris" revue of 1924-25. Gesmar also designed her costumes, beginning at the age of 16. (Art Deco; Dance; Cabaret; Mistinguett)...

    Auction Date: Mar 14, 2021

    Estimate: $3,000 - $4,000

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: Each: 11 1/2 x 19 in./29.2 x 48.2 cm PRINTER: DESCRIPTION: Throughout the course of Gesmar's and Mistinguett's close working relationship, Gesmar designed thousands of costumes and 55 posters for the ebullient showgirl. His creative work was prolific, despite a tragically short life, and he sketched out his ideas constantly. Here, we can witness his planning process for his 1928 poster, Mistinguett / Rags to Riches (see PAI-LXXVII, 224). These images are particularly detailed and very closely resemble the finalized design. At this point in his career, he had finessed his skills and was at the height of his game, but sadly, this also marked his last poster for Mistinguett. (2) (Art Deco; Dance; Fashion; Mistinguett)...

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 46 1/8 x 63 in./117 x 160 cm PRINTER: Imp. H. Chachoin, Paris DESCRIPTION: This wry image of Mistinguett plays on her legendary performance style involving luxurious flirtation with the viewer. It's also a testament to the seamless collaboration between the showgirl and her costume-designer artist, the young prodigy Charles Gesmar, who designed thousands of costumes and 55 posters for her. Note the identical hue of coral upon wrist-bauble, nails, and lips; the lapis lazuli upon her finger, and in her eye shadow; the emerald upon her ring finger, and in her eyes; the black pearls and Mistinguett's mascara. Peek-a-boo, the colors say: I see you. (Art Deco; Music)...

As is hinted at by the snoozing tikes below, this famous annual event benefitted a children?s hospital. This is the larger format?and rare! (Art Deco; Dance; Children)...

One of the rarest of Gesmar?s designs for the cabaret star, this image shows her flirtatiously smoking a pearl-encrusted pipe, glancing coyly?or is that wearily??over her shoulder. She's shown in the "Bonjour Paris" revue of 1924-25. Gesmar also designed her costumes, beginning at the age of 16. (Art Deco; Dance; Mistinguett)...

Casino de Paris DESCRIPTION: With a name like Max Dearly, it's hard to not become a heartthrob of the stage and screen. That's why Lucien Roland renamed himself: he landed lead roles in 49 plays and films between 1903 and 1941, including Jean Renoir's "Madame Bovary" and a 1934 version of "Les Miserábles." Gesmar loved to draw his stars winking at you; in Max's arch expression, he knows that you love him dearly. Rare! (Art Deco; Film; Theatre)...

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 46 1/8 x 63 in./117 x 160 cm PRINTER: Imp. H. Chachoin, Paris DESCRIPTION: This wry image of Mistinguett plays on her legendary performance style involving luxurious flirtation with the viewer. It's also a testament to the seamless collaboration between the showgirl and her costume-designer artist, the young prodigy Charles Gesmar, who designed thousands of costumes and 55 posters for her. Note the identical hue of coral upon wrist-bauble, nails, and lips; the lapis lazuli upon her finger, and in her eye shadow; the emerald upon her ring finger, and in her eyes; the black pearls and Mistinguett's mascara. Peek-a-boo, the colors say: I see you. (Art Deco; Music; Mistinguett)...

    Auction Date: Jul 21, 2020

    Estimate: $3,500 - $4,500

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 47 1/8 x 62 3/8 in./119.6 x 158.3 cm PRINTER: Imp H. Chachoin, Paris DESCRIPTION: Well there's a looker! Gesmar seems to have (artistically) cheated on Mistinguett by stepping out with Simone Dulac for a moment, bringing his characteristic lines, baubles, and adornments to fashion an image projecting flirtatiousness, eroticism, and a knowing wit. She's shown in the role of Micheline in the play Amours Délices, in a somewhat idealized form. Other posters by Adrien Barrère, as well as contemporary photos, portray her much as she was: a comic character actress, rather than a showgirl starlet, with parts in the comedies Je Suis un Homme Perdu (I Am a Lost Man) and Le Loup Garou (The Werewolf). As such, this marvelously evocative lithograph is also quite rare. (Art Deco; Theatre)...

Françaises Réunies, Paris DESCRIPTION: In one of Gesmar?s most dazzling?and elusive?designs, this beauty dressed seemingly in nothing but beads invites us most tantalizingly to a charity ball at the Opera sponsored by the newspaper L?Intransigent. As is hinted at by the snoozing tikes below, this famous annual event benefitted a children?s hospital. This is the larger format?and rare! (Art Deco; Dance)...

    Description: This is an original watercolor and pencil drawing, titled verso "Incognito", dated June '27, signed under mat. An innovative costume and poster designer of the XX century, Gesmar's posters and program/book covers are named in the tradition of graphic works of two other major artists who worked for the Moulin Rouge, Toulouse-Lautrec and Rene Gruau. Jean Cocteau was his great admirer. Despite his exclusive relationship with Mistinguett, Gesmar produced posters for many other stars such as Spinelly, Marnac, E. Leslie, Raimu, Barbette, Falconetti, Pierly, St. Granier, Popesco etc. Overall size: 21 1/2 x 17 1/4 in Sight size: 13 3/4 x 10 1/4 in...

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 12 x 18 1/4 in./30.5 x 46.3 cm DESCRIPTION: Gesmar fashions Mistinguett in a delicate pink plaid dress that drastically contrasts her more opulent and risqué costumes?but which hat should she wear? Gesmar provides two playful options. We're tempted to say that this must be an earlier design?see PAI-LXVII, 104 for a similarly modest pink outfit from 1917.

Note her mini-me, burdened with the weight of her fine accessories while Mistinguett flatters the viewer with her leggy pose?a classic combination of humor and sass from Gesmar.

    Description: ARTIST: CHARLES GESMAR (1900-1928) SIZE: 13 34 x 19 1/4 in./35 x 49 cm DESCRIPTION: Mistinguett looks incredibly flapper chic in this painting by Gesmar. He's included many lovely details: the golden auburn color of her pixie cut, the plume of smoke curling upwards from her pipe, a rosy cheek and cat eye makeup, pearls and jewels cascading down her neck and arm, and a vibrantly colored coat?or is she wrapped in a blanket? We like to imagine that the scene unfolded backstage just before Mistinguett wowed the crowds at the Moulin Rouge. (Art Deco; Dance; Mistinguett; Fashion)...
