From “Gazette du Bon Ton”, published by Lucien Vogel and his artists all of whom were trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. Using the pochoir technique originally employed for colouring woodblock prints in the C15th. Pochoir, used layers of colour to build up the design. As many as thirty stages using gouache paints could be employed in one design. Styles were influenced by art movements such as Cubism, Fauvism and the Russian Ballet. Rare.

Biography:

The pochoir technique was used mainly in France from
the 1880’s to 1930’s.  Pochoir printing was used in industrial design,
interiors, textile, and architecture.

Pochoir
incorporates the use of numerous stencils for applying individual
colours using watercolour or gouache to the one sheet. A craftsman known
as a découpeur would cut stencils with a straight-edged knife.
The stencils were made of aluminum, copper, or zinc and plastic in the
C20th.  Stencils created by the découpeur would be passed on to
the colourists. The colourists applied the pigments using a variety of
different brushes and methods of paint application to create the
finished pochoir print.

The pochoir technique was
labour intensive, expensive and slow. As a result, techniques such as
lithography and serigraphy, mechanised in nature, replaced pochoir as a
method colour printing.
