George Barbier Illustrations
Regarded as one of the finest French illustrators of the early twentieth century, George Barbier (1882-1932) was born in Nantes, France. He is famously associated with the Art Deco movement and for his illustrations en pochoir (using stencils). Following his first exhibition in 1911, Barbier was offered commissions to design costumes for both ballet and theatre, whilst also illustrating books and creating haute couture fashion illustrations.
