Capturing the ambiance of 1930s dress and décor, this contemporary print on silk recalls the advertisements that proliferated during Shanghai’s economic boom of the early 20th century. These lithographic prototypes updated traditional subject matter with a la mode Art Deco design, lavishly painted in colorful detail. This print perfectly captures this admixture of cultural styles within the visual narrative of a woman reading a letter. Elegantly garbed in the latest Western fashion, the woman is situated in a study stylishly appointed in contemporary décor. An intricate border encapsulates the scene like a finely woven tapestry and centers a pack of W.D. & H.O. Wills brand tobacco cigarettes at the top of the composition.
