Pair of French Costume Designs (1 of 2): Pair of original mixed media on cardboard costume designs by George Barbier, 1918.
Barbier (1882-1932) was one of the great French illustrators of the 20th Century. After his first exhibition in 1911, he was swept to the forefront of his profession with commissions to design theatre and ballet costumes, to illustrate books and produce haute couture fashion designs. These two works are outstanding examples of his costume design; both signed and dated middle right.
