  • Artist - George Barbier - Biography
    Born in Nantes, Barbier held his first exhibition in 1911 and established himself as a leading figure in Paris as a designer of theatre and cinema costumes and an illustrator of books and haute couture fashion. His better known work includes costumes for Rudolph Valentino in the film Monsieur Beaucaire and set designs at the Folies-Bergère. Barbier’s illustrations and pochoir prints from the 1920s are widely considered to epitomise the spirit of Art Deco and Jazz Age Paris with their combination of diverse influences such a Orientalism, Aubrey Beardsley, classical Greek vase decorations and 18th century French paintings. He died in 1932 at the zenith of his artistic career, with regular contributions to L’Illustration magazine.
