"Formes et couleurs" is an album of sixty-seven decorative motifs in the Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles, printed in vivid colors using the pochoir process. These plates, originally in a portfolio, were meant to serve as inspirational models for artists and artisans working in the fine and decorative arts. Pochoir is a stenciling process used for the reproduction of original color works. It was used in France by the most prominent artists and craftsmen to produce illustrated deluxe portfolios, books, limited-edition journals, and decorative and fine-art prints between 1895 and 1935.
