Lord Leighton • "de chic"

"…pupils were expected to invent draperies and accessories.   Leighton had shown himself a great adept at doing this, making skillful drawings of folds that he told a friend afterwards were made de chic." 
~ from Frederic Leighton (1904) by Alice Corkran

"…an artist who paints a picture without a model says that he did it "de chic." ~ A Social Mirage (1899) by Mrs. Frank Leslie
