About The Artwork
According to Greek Mythology, Eros was the god of love and sex and the son of the perhaps more famous mythological figure, Aphrodite. With this print, Barbier is mixing symbols from two different points in time.
The women are subjects and clearly identifiable as upper-class women from the early 1900s and the Art Nouveau era, whilst the sculpture of Eros is a symbol for the mythological ancient times.
The French illustrator George Barbier was born in 1882 and did not have to wait long to reach success. His brilliant Art Noveau illustrations gained national prominence, and he had his first major exhibition at 29; this was the start of a comet also known as Barbiers Career.
He was commissioned to design theatre and ballet costumes, illustrate books, and produce haute couture fashion illustrations, just to name a few of his accomplishments.
However, Barbier's influence reached beyond the art world; he also put his mark on the world of fine art academia. At Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he led a group of illustrators for over 20 years, and they were given the nickname "The Knights of the Bracelet" by Vogue Magazine because of their flamboyant style of dressing.
Barbier did not stop producing art and expanded his mediums of work as he started designing jewelry, wallpapers, custom sets, and glasses and writing articles for various magazines.
The life and career of Barbier are one to be respected and admired; his work has shaped the style of art deco and will continue to influence the world of art with its unique aesthetics.
