  • Marsilio editori / Musei Civici Veneziani George Barbier and the Birth of Art Deco 2009 This is the very first exhibition dedicated to George Barbier (1882-1932), artist and fashion illustrator, theatre designer and protagonist of the Art Deco movement. Curated by Barbara Martorelli, this exhibition presents over two hundred works including paintings, drawings, articles, pochoir, photographs, books, manuscripts and films from the extensive collections of Palazzo Mocenigo – Study Centre of the History of Fabrics and Costumes, from the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Bibliothèque Nationale in France, Musée des Beaux Arts in Nantes as well as from private Italian and French collections.
  • For the next 20 years Barbier led a group from the Ecole des Beaux Arts who were nicknamed by Vogue Magazine as "The Knights of the Bracelet" - a tribute to their fashionable and flamboyant mannerisms and style of dress. Included in this elite circle were Bernard Boutet de Monvel, Pierre Brissaud, 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 1920's he worked with Erte to design sets and costumes for the Folies Bergere and in 1929 he wrote the introduction for Erte's acclaimed exhibition and achieved mainstream popularity through his regular appearances in L'Illustation magazine. Sadly Barbier passed away in 1932 at the very pinnacle of his success. “ George Barbier: The Birth of Art Deco” - The first singular study of one of the key artists of the Art Deco movement, George Barbier (1882–1932) was a fashion illustrator to the leading stylists (Poiret, Lanvin, Paquin, Vionnet) of his time, as well as a set and costume designer for the theater, Russian ballet, and music hall. Barbier's work is also noted in the world of advertising, wallpaper design, and jewelry for Cartier, in albums, as well as in almanacs and precious illustrated books. This volume, with essays by Italian and French authors, marks the rediscovery of a very successful artist of 1920s Paris who was strangely forgotten after his death in 1932.

    2. 2. George Barbier French illustrators of the early 20th century George Barbier (1882 - 1932) portrait by Charles Martin Born in Nantes, France on October 10, 1882, Barbier 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, to illustrate books, and to produce haute couture fashion illustrations. 90 91 Barbier began his career as a costume and set designer for the Ballets Russes, where he became inspired by the poetic movements of the celebrated Russian dancer Vaslav Nijinsky. Designs on the Dances of Vaslav Nijinsky is Barbier's first illustrated book and one of the first lavishly produced editions de luxe that became so popular in France and London during the 1910's and 1920's.  George Barbier is considered one of the finest illustrators in the Art Deco genre. With a distinctive elegance and simplicity, he captured the mood and atmosphere of his time. Barbier was successful in a multitude of visual disciplines, including fashion illustration and advertising graphics, as well as poster, textile and wallpaper design. 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 1920's he worked with Erté to design sets and costumes for the Folies Bergère and in 1929 he wrote the introduction for Erté's acclaimed exhibition and achieved mainstream popularity through his regular appearances in L'Illustation magazine. Sadly Barbier passed away in 1932 at the very pinnacle of his success. Barbier died in 1932 at the age of 50, still at the height of his powers. Soon after his death, the Second World War effaced his memory and his work has largely been the domain of dealers and collectors of art deco graphics. That may be changing. In 2009 “George Barbier: The Birth of Art Deco” at the Fortuny Museum in Venice provided a long overdue reconsideration of his career. Influences on his work included the Orientalism and bright coloring of Léon Bakst’s costumes for Schéhérazade, Aubrey Beardsley’s Japanese-inspired serpentine line, Chinese lacquers, classical imagery from Greek vase painting, and 18th-century painting and decorative art.
