Jeanne Gatineau Skin

This chic ad from 1954 presents Jeanne Gatineau’s moisturising cream. Ideal for decorating a bathroom wall, this poster illustrated by Pierre Simon recalls the finest of René Gruau’s fashion illustration for Christian Dior. The use of block colours and the woman’s alluring figure along with its elegant representation of femininity place it in this tradition. This image would have fit right in with the modernism and refinement of Dior’s ‘New Look’ that took the world by storm in the 1950s.

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.
