Le Bon Genre No. 11 "Le Volant" Hand Color Fashion Print Framed 16"x19"


"Le Volant" Le Bon Genre Print No.11 Engraving

  • Framed and matted dimensions: 16"x19"  Image dimensions: 8 1/2"x11 1/2"

Le Bon Genre was one of the earliest series of prints to record the social trends and leisure activities of contemporary Parisians.  It is the most important fashion portfolio of its time documenting, through its caricatures, the rise of modern Paris and the emerging middle-class bourgeois, its fashions, recreations and dating customs.  It also has fun at visitors' expense, particularly the English, whose customs and fashions the French found incomprehensible and unfashionable; the years of hostility between France and England did nothing to improve relations and the French lost few opportunities to ridicule the British.  Le Bon Genre's popularity influenced most of the later fashion illustrators and journals, as well as the satirical albums typical of France, 1830-1860, and it remains an important record of French social history. It is, indeed, the key illustrated social history of Parisian life of its time, bearing witness to the colorful  post-Revolution period of Parisian society as it evolved into the early Republican era.  (Source:Booktryst)
