Another advertising piece from our Etablissment Nicolas collection. This illustration, done in the pochoir style is one of our favorites. Pochoir, closely associated with Art Nouveau and Art Deco, is a stenciling process known for its crisp lines and brilliant colors popular from the early 1900s through the 1930s.
Happy Friday!
