Laroche..? Oh Yes!

Robert Laroche is a wonderful illustrator. Dreamy women, sensual decorations, amazing flowers, pistachio and fuchsia colours, elegant typography, languorous couples, typical ink speckles to produce half-tones… one can pick out a Laroche design rather easily. During the Parisian 1920s, Laroche worked mainly for music publishers Max Eschig and Smyth.

Two covers signed ‘LR’. Both show the distinct mark and talent of Robert Laroche.

We are happy that the scientific committee at Images Musicales 😉 has unanimously accepted the iconographic evidence to  include the above, and five more covers signed ‘LR‘, to the artistic work of Robert Laroche. Hereunder we share with you a potpourri of the graphic arguments…


But who is Robert Laroche?
