Description:

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 many as thirty
stages) to create the 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
aluminium, 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.
