The phrase “A Picture is Worth 1000 Words” has its modern origins credited to an advertising manager from the 1920’s named Fred Barnard. Barnard used a couple of very similar phrases (One Look is Worth A Thousand Words, and One Picture is Worth Ten Thousand Words) to promote the sale of ads on the sides of streetcars.

By the way, Napoleon turned the famous phrase with a slightly less exacting rendition of the later 20th century implementation:

“Un bon croquis vaut mieux qu’un long discours!” In English it’s: “A good sketch is better than a long speech!”

This R Lalique photograph is also listed in our Rene Lalique Auctions Section.
