Cheri Herouard ~ La Vie Parisienne

While looking for artwork to decoupage onto candle jars, I serendipitiously found vintage covers of the French magazine, La Vie Parisienne.  Founded in 1863, La Vie Parisienne was originally designed to appeal to the upper-classes, offering literary pieces, society gossip and articles about the arts.  It also featured the work of immensely talented artists like Georges Barbier, Gerda Wegener, Chéri Hérouard, Georges Léonnec, Maurice Milliere.  The artwork was considered risqué, even erotic (think early porn for the intellectual).

I adore the work Chéri Hérouard did for La Vie Parisienne and wanted to share some of it with you.  I hope you find it as titillating as I do!

"Chut!" appears to be by Georges Barbier.
