Period Paper is excited to offer a collection of rare color heliogravures and halftone prints from the No. 8 September-November edition of Verve, volume 2. Verve was a French art review magazine that remained in publication during War World II. The No. 8 edition was completed just days before the German occupation of Paris, France, and it took extraordinary efforts for copies to reach America. As a result of the ongoing war, it was decided that the theme would be the Nature of France, and each work of art, be they contemporary or Medieval, is a magnificent chef d-oeuvre that the modern Francophile will greatly enjoy.

This piece was illustrated by Derain, AndrŽ.

André Derain

André Derain (1880-1954) was a native of Chatou, France. He often mimicked the artistic stylings of Van Gogh and Cezanne. For a period of time, Derain also specialized as a pointillist (dot painting) painter. In 1906, Derain signed a contract with Pablo Picasso's art dealer, Daniel-Henri Kahnweiler.
