Description:

Designs by Poiret and Lanvin.

From “Gazette du Bon Ton”, published by Lucien Vogel and his artists all of whom were trained at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. The pochoir technique was originally employed for colouring woodblock prints in the C15th. It involved applying layers of colour gouache paint (with as manyas thirty stages) to create the one design. Styles were influenced by art movements such as Cubism, Fauvism and the Russian Ballet. Rare.

The Pochoir technique was used mainly in France from the 1880’s to 1930’s, it incorporates the use of numerous stencils for applying individual colours using watercolour or gouage 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. Stencils created by the découpeur would be passed on to the coloristes. The coloristes 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.
