Candesco

This ad from 1936 was illustrated by Leon Benigni (1892-1948) for Candesco. Benigni was a leading fashion illustrator and graphic designer who worked for couturiers as esteemed as Jeanne Lanvin, Elsa Schiaparelli and Lucien Lelong. His work appeared in popular magazines including Femina and Harper’s Bazaar. He was known for his bold, Art Deco-style illustrations which captured the glamour of the age. This black-and white art work depicting a gloriously dressed woman with her face coquettishly hidden by a fan is characteristic of that style.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
