Auguste H. Thomas

Published by Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, Paris. Circa 1922

Pochoir-printed on heavy-weight paper

Complete page is 18” x 12”; the printed image is 15.25” x 10.25”

 

This was originally a folio of 20 Art Deco pochoir plates designed by Auguste Thomas. Since this folio is incomplete I am offering some of the plates for sale individually.

Pochoir was a refined method of hand stencil-printing that resulted in layers of pigment that look as if the design were hand-painted with gouache. The colors are saturated and vivid.

The edges of the plates are slightly rubbed, rough and discolored , however all the images (except plate 1- DEER – SORRY SOLD) are in fine condition and would look beautiful matted and framed. Each plate is $75 except for plate 1 which is $50 (it has a stain that is visible in the scan). The title page is not included. Plate 8 has a bonus – someone made a pencil sketch of a 1920s pin-up girl on the back.

Prices: Plates 7 (BIRDS & FLOWERS), 8 (FLORAL with ACORNS), 11 (FLOWERS & FRUIT), 12 (ORANGE BIRD & LEAVES) are $75 each; Plate 1 (DEER) is $50 – Sorry, plate 1 has been SOLD.
