Nouvelles Fantaisies Décoratives
New Decorative Fantasies

Nouvelles Fantaisies Décoratives is a collection of  20 coloured plates by French artist Henri Gillet. NYPL Digital Collections date this collection from between 1880 and 1920. You can see traces of Neoclassicism (the naked girl and the snail see Plate 2 below) combined with Art Nouveau and Art Deco.

The original works look like they were printed ‘pochoir‘ –a process where single layers of color are added to the chromolith using a stencil similar to silk-screening.
