CHARLET TEXTILE PRINTS

GASTON CHARLET c1922

CHARLET WAS A FABRIC DESIGNER IN PARIS DURING THE EARLY ART DECO ERA.
THIS IS A STUDY OF SOME OF THE MORE IMPORTANT PIECES OF CHARLETS' WORK.
EACH PIECE WAS METICULOUSLY DRAFTED IN A TYPICAL DECO STYLE .
IDENTIFIED WITH SUPERB DRAPERY, OPULENCE AND TOTAL EXCESS WHICH WAS THE
HALLMARK OF THIS THEATRICAL PERIOD, CHARLET TOOK A STEP FURTHER AND PRODUCED
THE PRINTS IN BRIGHT, SOMETIMES VIVID COLOURS USING A POCHOIR PROCESS.
HAND COLOURED USING STENCILS AS A BLOCK, COMBINED WITH HIS ABILITY TO IMPLY
AFFLUENCE AND MAJESTY USING THIN VERTICAL LINES AND AN ILLUSION OF HANGING
TAPESTRIES, EACH PRINT BECAME IT'S OWN STAGE.

EACH PIECE IS IN NEAR PERFECT CONDITION. SIZED AT 13"X 18", EACH IS PRICED C$650
