In 1945, Bouche, a fashion illustrator for Vogue, chronicled Parisians attempting to return to normal life after the trauma of war. The show is a sampling of his sketches and letters with sensitive observations of American GIs lounging in outdoor cafes, young girls, black marketeers and bread lines.
