This is a beautiful print from the magazine, “La Vie Parisienne’, drawn by C Martin, published 1917 and titled ‘L’Infidelle’. The magazine was founded in Paris in 1863 and rapidly became successful and well regarded, particularly for its illustrations. These reflected the french attitude to life and love with drawings of beautiful, tantalising women. Fashion and frivolity mixed with discussions about the stock exchange and gossip from the streets. While its articles reflected the French values and attitudes of the time, during World War 1, the American troops were warned against reading the magazine. The orange colour was particularly popular during the early decades of the 20th Century.
