Lot 0228 Details

Artist: JEAN-GABRIEL DOMERGUE (1889-1962) Size: 31 1/4 x 47 1/8 in./79.2 x 119.7 cm Imp. H. Chachoin, Paris While Domergue had previously created themes for parties and galas at the Paris Opera (see following lot), the actual set design and costumes for the Fairy Tales Ball advertised in the poster by him went to René Gontran Ranson, one of the leading designers in Paris during the inter-war period. Calling on the exoticism of the East Ranson had used in a Baghdad-style ball he curated earlier that year, Domergue gives us the heights of fantasy, complete with an Oriental couple being whisked away to the stars by their own private Pegasus.
B+/ Slight tears at folds.
