A collection of original photographs

The best reason to buy a photograph is that you like it: it gives you pleasure, stimulates you, challenges you. Everything else, especially the issue of investment, always comes second.

A collection original Photogravures, Etchings, Maps...

Simply put, photogravures are photographs etched into copper and printed traditionally with ink. Their rich velvety matte surface, deep shadows, delicate half tones, and luminous highlights make photogravures some of the most beautiful and tactile images ever printed. Their invention, critical to the development of photography itself, was derived from an extraordinary quest during the nineteenth century to harness the power to diffuse thought through the action of light.

Silkscreens, Serigraphs, Lithographs...

A selection of original silkscreens, lithographs and others

Most of us dream of owning an original Pablo Picasso, Josef Albers or Joan Miró but original prints by famous artists are rare and very expensive. However, lithographs or screen prints offer the chance to own a piece of beautiful artwork printed by a craftsman that has been reproduced in small quantities from an original image and they won't cost the world.

La Gazette du Bon Ton

A beautiful collection of pochoirs from 1920's

The Gazette du Bon Ton was a small but influential fashion magazine published in France from 1912 to 1925.

Founded by Lucien Vogel, the short-lived publication reflected the latest developments in fashion, lifestyle and beauty during a period of revolutionary change in art and society.

Distributed by Condé Nast, the magazine was issued as the Gazette du Bon Genre in the USA. Both titles roughly translate as "Journal of Good Taste" or "Journal of Good Style."
