Dr N.G Payot

Plucked from a genuine French periodical of the 1940s and 1950s, this ad was created to sell Dr. N.G. Payot’s red lipstick. The artist takes a symbolic approach, with the disembodied form of red lips in the centre, surrounded by an elegant black border and two lipsticks on either side. This attractively symmetrical picture possesses a simple clarity combined with an opulence characteristic of much advertising in the post-war period. Understated yet elegant, it will make a fine contribution to the decor wherever it finds its home.

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.
