Lu Boudoir

Art Deco style sells biscuits in this 1951 ad for the famed manufacturer Lefèvre-Utile (or LU for short). The picture conveys the luxury and sophistication for which France was searching after war and austerity. Cubism’s influence can be seen, as the men’s angular figures emerge at jaunty angles. Their bodies reflect the biscuit, too- Boudoirs come in the shape of narrow rectangles. Ever since the 1880s LU sought out the finest artists to create works which are now collector’s favourites.

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.
