Description

This particular lot features the original zinc printing plate as well as well as a black and white proof plate.


This exceptional pochoir illustration by George Barbier was part of his and Jean-Louis Vaudoyer's Album Dedie a Tamar Karsavina. The work was published in Paris by Corrard in 1914. The publication was limited to 500 of which this is from # 276. It was printed on Velin d'Arches paper.

Tamara Platonovna Karsavina (1885-1978) was a Russian prima ballerina with the Imperial Russian Ballet and subsequently Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. The work "depict[ed] Karsavina in her principal parts. That their purpose is again to stir the emotion and delight the eye of the viewer, not to document the performance, is demonstrated by 'Le spectre de la rose,' glimpsed at the moment when the phantom lover, of whom the young girl has dreamed after the ball, is about to disappear as the rose drops from her hand." (Ray)

George Barbier (1882-1932) was one of the greatest French artists of the early 20th century. He first exhibited in 1911 at the age of 29 where he gained many commissions to design costumes and illustrate works, fashion in particular. Barbier led a group nicknamed by Vogue "The Knights of the Bracelet" formed from artists from the Ecole des Beaux Arts and including Monvel, Brissaud, Iribe, Lepape, and Martin. Beyond his illustrations, Barbier created jewelry, glass and wallpaper design.
