Caron makeup powder

This cosmetics ad from 1952 is for the prestigious perfume house Caron, still in business today. It depicts a curly haired youth wearing a headband, set against a turquoise hue. The image evokes the famous frescoes of Ancient Greece. The simple, white outlines glisten, suggesting beauty and youth. Appropriate for a France emerging from war into a new era of optimism and economic boom. Plucked from the pages of a real French periodical, this artwork transports viewers into that past.

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.
