Biography:

George Barbier (1882–1932) 

Barbier was one of the great French illustrators of the early 20th century. He was 29 years old when he mounted his first exhibition in 1911 and was subsequently swept to the forefront of his profession with commissions to design theatre and ballet costumes, illustrate books, and to produce haute couture fashion illustrations. For the next 20 years Barbier led a group from theEcole des Beaux Arts. Included in this élite circle were Bernard Boutet de Monvel and Pierre Brissaud (both of whom were Barbier’s first cousins), Paul Iribe, Georges Lepape, and Charles Martin. During his career Barbier also turned his hand to jewellery, glass and wallpaper design, wrote essays and many articles for the prestigiousGazette du bon ton. In the mid-1920s he worked with Erté to design sets and costumes for theFolies Bergereand in 1929 he wrote the introduction for Erte’s exhibition and achieved mainstream popularity through his regular appearances in L’Illustration magazine.
