Georges Barbier was a French artist who worked during the early 20th century on book illustration, wallpaper, stage design, jewelry and probably anything else that could be covered in elaborate decoration. His work epitomizes the period's fascination with the Orient and all things exotic. His fashion drawings are also a wonderful peek into high style during a wonderfully dramatic era.
