Georges Barbier (French artist,1882 - 1932)


One of the great French illustrators of the 20th century.... His first exhibition at age 29 swept him to the forefront of his field with commissions to design ballet and theatre costumes, illustrate books, and produce his own haute couture line. He also turned his talents to jewelry, glass and wallpaper design, wrote essays, and worked with Erte, hence the similarity. They worked together designing sets and costumes for the Folies Bergere.
