About This Item

Paris: Camille Bloch & Jules Meynial, 1927. First Edition. A remarkable collection of elegant theatrical costume designs signed by leading French art deco designer George Barbier (1882-1932). Portrait frontispiece of Barbier by his friend and rival Charles Martin. Although primarily a book illustrator, Barbier applied his considerable skill to fabric design, posters, jewellery, wallpaper and commercial wrappings. He rose to prominence on the Parisian scene after his first exhibition of 1911 and worked under the creative direction of Sergei Diaghilev for the Ballets Russes issuing a portfolio of designs for Vaslav Nijinsky in 1913. The designs featured in 'Vingt-cinq Costumes pour le Theatre' show Barbier at the height of his artistic career. Quarto, portrait frontispiece, edition limited to 260 copies, 24 page introduction with 25 pochoir colour plates, each signed by the artist and mounted on tinted grey Arches paper; bound in original polished half-calf with black lettering, a fine and elegant copy.
