About the work
André Édouard Marty was a leading French illustrator contributing to renowned publications such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair. He was one of the key pioneers of the style which later became known as ‘Art Deco’. In 1919, the year after the end of The Great War, he was the featured artist in the elite limited-edition fashion journal ‘Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui’. Using the pochoir method Marty produced a series of influential style images of which Les ailes dans le vent was the ultimate.
A fashionably dressed independent young woman looks confidently offshore, above her in the cloud filled sky is an aeroplane flying away; a symbol of modernity and progress. A flight of birds and the swirl of her beautifully patterned cloak in the wind make for a composition filled with movement. We can look forward to future of great style and a new world. Les ailes dans le vent is both captivating and meaningful but always enjoyable.
The giclée process produces prints which are rich, detailed and with saturated colour – these prints are often mistaken for originals.
As with any work of art we recommend displaying your print away from direct sunlight to prevent fading.
