Illustration Details

La Vie Parisienne print of a vintage Art Deco design, depicting a woman jumping off a diving board.

French Text : Une Parisienne a la mer. Ohe! les poissons... Me v'la!

Translation : A Parisienne sea. Oih! fish I'm coming!

The shape of the woman perched at the edge of a pier or diving board, beautifully captures the moment just before she plunges into the waters below. The pose is reminiscent of Art Deco nymph car mascots or hood ornaments, displaying beauty, elegance and grace. The print design is framed by basic lines and the simple curved waves of the sea.
