Rouge Baiser

This classic work from 1951 is by René Gruau, a giant of French fashion illustration, best known by his work for Christian Dior. Here he puts to work his idiosyncratic red, white and black colour scheme, while the simplest and most graceful ink line creates the outline of the woman’s head. She wears Rouge Baiser, the world’s first kiss-proof lipstick. Gruau’s fashion illustrations are shown in exhibitions at world-class galleries; his depictions of feminine elegance remain iconic to this day.

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.
