Pochoir Prints

Vibrant Visions: Pochoir Prints in the Cooper-Hewitt.
From the Smithsonian Museum

Pochoir is a refined stencil-based technique employed to create prints or to add color to pre-existing prints. It was most popular from the late 19th century through the 1930's with its center of activity in Paris. Pochoir was primarily used to create prints devoted to fashion, patterns, and architectural design and is most often associated with Art Nouveau and Art Deco.
