Print Title: Le Moniteur de la Mode. No. 2Artist: Jules DavidDate: 1883Medium: Hand colored engravingSize: 10.5 x 8.5 inches (268 x 220 mm)From: "Le Moniteur de la Mode"Publisher: Abel Goubaud, ParisIllustration of French ladies' fashions from the periodical "Le Moniteur de la Mode."
The Moniteur de la Mode was first published in 1843 and fashion plates entered a new age where they were made more scenic and became conversation pieces. It is an important Paris magazine in that most artwork was done by the artist Jules David. It was David who developed the fashion plate into a composition with interesting backgrounds. He placed the models in settings such as garden or against rose trailed pergolas. He also used carefully studied interiors from bedroom to dining room to drawing room. We are able to observe ladies taking afternoon tea or strolling at the racecourse and at the same time get a good idea of the surrounding style of the day.
