Easter Hatch by Georges Pavis

This illustration appeared in saucy French magazine La Vie Parisienne in 1926.  It was the work of Georges Pavis (1886-1977) who sold his first illustrations at the age of nine.  He studied at l'École des beaux-arts but was drafted into the army during the Great War, where he was badly injured at Verdun.  After the war he provided illustrations for all the main French magazines, as well as books.

  1. A very cute picture and presumably quite risque for its time? Thanks, as ever, for such an informative post on female art.
