Christian BERARD.

Item #8457

A vintage pen and ink drawing of a woman (or man) in profile wearing formal attire. Although unsigned, it bears an unmistakable likeness to works that he produced for one of the leading couturiers of the 1930s- he worked as a fashion illustrator for Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, and Nina Ricci. He was important in the development of design in the 1930s and 1940s, working with Jean-Michel Frank and Jean Cocteau on a number of projects.
Very good on board (10.5" x 4 3/4"), evidence of tape at edges.

Price: $250.00
