Georges Barbier

Georges Barbier (1882-1932) was a painter and leading illustrator of the Art Deco movement who provided fashion plates for some of the leading couturiers of the period, notably Jeanne Lanvin and Madeleine Vionnet. He studied in Nantes and later entered the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris.  He came to public attention in 1911 with an exhibition of drawings at the Galerie Boutet de Monvel in Paris.  The majority of his work was in the form of fashion illustrations for magazines, including Vogue, and is characterized by a refinement and elegance reflective of the Art Deco Era. He also produced designs for stage sets and theatre costumes as well as fabrics, fans, and wallpaper.
