The Art of Fashion and Costume Design in Paris and Halifax

  Author:   Mora Dianne O’Neill, Arthur M Smith,  
  Publisher:  Art Gallery of Nova Scotia

Transatlantique considers the development of the Art Deco aesthetic in Paris and Halifax evidenced in prints and drawings of fashion and costume designs from both cities, with particular attention given to the work of George Barbier. A special feature of this publication is the eight images of works in the exhibition that have been printed on high-quality paper for possible removal and framing.

Thoughtful essays by Arthur M Smith, former Head Librarian, Royal Ontario Museum, and author of Chevalier du Bracelet – George Barbier and His Illustrated Works, and by Mora Dianne O’Neill, Associate Curator, Historical Prints and Drawings, consider the work of George Barbier and his colleagues in Paris, and that of Alice Egan Hagen, Marjorie Tozer, and Robert Doyle in Halifax.
