The Decorative Age


Continuing the George Barbier theme from the Nijinsky post, his work reminded me I’d had Artdecoblog bookmarked for some time. Searching there turned up some more of his pictures including this mythological scene done in his post-Beardsley style. The men in the picture below are hilariously effete for rugby players, they look more like a couple of costumiers casting aspersions on the poor woman’s outfit.

Artdecoblog is a great resource for pictures from this period and well worth a browse. The woman responsible has an equally excellent blog devoted to Belle Époque art and design.
