About This Item

THEATER INTEREST/DEPARTMENT STORE PUBLICITY

Pretty color pictorial wrappers with images of dancers surrounded by an elaborate border incorporating images of Comedy and Tragedy, insects and flowers. Fine. Published on the occasion of the 1909 Exposition de Soieries, evoking the spirit of the Marquise Victoire de Créquy, the 18th century poet and woman of letters.

Cover and color vignettes and black and white or tinted decorations by Louis Popineau. Publicity album for Les Grands Magasins de Pygmalion, a Paris department store, with offerings of silks, women's clothing and accessories. Each page with small photographic portrait of a contemporary actress, color vignette of drama or opera and text relating to the piece and its costumes.

A charming work with theatrical, costume and commercial interest.
