1950’s and 1960’s Fashion Illustrations, Nudes, Parisian Scenes from my Husband’s mother an Unknown Artist

What is more exciting than stumbling across something that you love and is now in your possession?  I have done just that.  My husband’s mother passed away recently and as we were cleaning and  organizing her estate I stumbled or should I say fell over with excitement the extraordinary finds in the garage.

Helen lived in Paris from 1954- 1965 teaching art, fashion, and falling in love.   She was an artist on her own right and her mediums included oil paintings, pastels, charcoal, and drawings.  I conclude she was prolific at that time and for reasons unknown moved away from her artwork.  The art has been preserved and protected all this time and discovering it all in the garage has been a very exciting project.

I am in interested in selling the artwork, I love the idea of the pieces going to the right home and buyers who will find much enjoyment out of it.   Below is a sampling of Helen Leyrers art in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  If you are interested in a particular piece of art please contact me at Monica@tenoutfits.com
