Jeanne Gatineau

A glamorous redhead coquettishly tosses her hair forward, its fearsome colour matching her orange lipstick. This piece from 1955 is by Pierre Simon- an accomplished illustrator of fashionable women, who also worked for Dior. The use of negative space emphasises feminine innocence, belied by her seductive eye. The cosmetics business Institut Jeanne Gatineau commissioned some of the finest commercial artists to produce work for their brand in the halcyon years of advertising art, before Revlon acquired the company in 1980.

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.
