Exquisite pochoir prints illustrating Pierre Louys' The Adventures of King Pausole.

Printed in Paris, 1930.

Brunelleschi was particularly known for his stylish erotic prints, redolent of Art Deco and the glistening Jazz Age in Paris.

The pochoir process is a means of printing using watercolour and gouache through stencils. Entirely unmechanised, it was both an intensive and highly luxurious way of producing images.
Umberto Brunelleschi PortraitUmberto Brunelleschi (1879 - 1949) was an Italian artist. He was born in Montemurlo, Italy, studied at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Florence and moved to Paris in 1900 with Ardengo Soffici where he soon established himself as a printer, book illustrator, set and costume designer. He worked for Le Rire as a caricaturist and was a contributor to many of the deluxe French fashion publications including Journal des Dames et Des Modes, La Vie Parisienne, Gazette du Bon Ton and Les Feuillets d'Art. Brunelleschi was also the artistic director of the short lived but significant La Guirlande d'art et de la littérature 1919-1920. After serving in the Italian Army during the First World War, he returned to Paris. In the 1920s he diversified into set and costume designs for the Folies Bergère, the Casino de Paris, the Théâtre du Châtelet and theaters in New York City, Germany, and in his native country. In Italy, he worked for Opera Houses such as La Scala in Milan, and the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in Florence. He created costumes for Josephine Baker. He is also noted for his design of the Martial et Armand logo c. 1923.
