JEAN-GABRIEL DOMERGUE (French / 1889-1962)

Jean-Gabriel Domergue was the great inheritor of Toulouse-Lautrec; his work defined a particular kind of swan-necked doe-eyed female beauty. Our prints by Jean-Gabriel Domergue are original lithographs from his 1956 portfolio La Parisienne, published in an edition of 197 copies after which the lithographic stones were effaced. The lithographs were printed under the direct supervision of the artist. Jean-Gabriel Domergue was born in Bordeaux, and studied at the Beaux-Arts, Paris, under a variety of teachers, including Tony Robert-Fleury, François Flameng and Jules Adler. In 1911 Domergue's "seductive and perverse" portrait of Gina Maletti was much admired by Apollinaire. Jean-Gabriel Domergue claimed to be the inventor of the pin-ip: "ma première pin-up date de 1912". His most celebrated model was Nadine de Rothschild. Domergue won the Prix de Rome in 1913, a gold medal at the Salon of 1920, and became a member of the Institut. As well as paintings, etchings, lithographs. and posters, Domergue created stage and costume designs for theatre, notably for "Nuits de folie" at the Folies-Bergère in 1932.
