This is the artist signature on the 1918 Vogue print. Does anyone recognize it?

    Hi. If you look under Georges Lepape you will get hit after hit on this great deco designer.

    I have a print of his from the Gazette du Bon Ton.

    Georges Lepape was born in Paris, France in 1887.
    He was strongly influenced by orientalism and the Ballets Russes.
    In 1916 Conde Nast, the American publisher of Vogue, commisioned him to do the first cover for their UK edition.
    After seeing his work, and publishing some of it in US Vogue also, Nast went to Paris around 1920 and brought over to Vogue a group of artists who had been contributing to the Gazette du Bon Ton, a magazine which he had taken over from Vogel. Lepape was one of these.
    Lepape was one of the dominant presences at Vogue till the mid-30's.
    Georges Lepape died in 1971 at the age of 84.
