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 the Ecole 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 prestigious Gazette du bon ton. In the mid-1920s he worked with Erté to design sets and costumes for the Folies Bergere and
in 1929 he wrote the introduction for Erte’s exhibition and achieved
mainstream popularity through his regular appearances in L’Illustration
magazine.
