Theater artist Georges Barbier (1882 – 1932) imbues a poster with the lush detailing of a tapestry in “Duval, Svoboda.” Paulette Duval and Vacelav Svoboda were famous dancers in the early 20th century. Duval danced and acted in many movies, and was a dancer for the Ziegfeld Follies and George White. Svoboda was a Bolshoi Ballet dancer, performed in numerous Russian films and founded a New York dance school. Possibly Barbier’s first poster, “Duval, Svoboda” is his finest accomplishment in this medium.
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper is acid free with a smooth surface.
