Le Frou-Frou : Maquette. 1900.
This handsigned, gouache and ink maquette by Weiluc is an original representation of one of the most famous, most witty, most flirtatious, most exquisitely French posters of all time. Le Frou-Frou was a satirical magazine that ran from the turn of the 20th century to World War I. Cappiello actually designed the poster for the first issue (No. 150), but it's this one, with legs disappearing within the pure white fantasy space of petticoats, the luxurious pillows, the languorous cigarette spelling out the name in smoke, and – most especially – the devastatingly seductive dart of eyes to our left, that will have us dreaming for many years to come.
