D Gibson - Boudoir Art

"D Gibson" is a name seen on several art deco boudoir etchings. The subject typically include several young ladies in twenties fashion and often walking Borzoi dogs. However, I can't find any biographical details about the artist or even if I am reading the signature correctly.

The copyright marks on these prints confirm a 1930's date and that they were published in Paris.

In my attempts to find examples, I tried searching for postcards, often a reliable source of reproductions and dating material. Sadly no real luck; there is an American artist  Charles Dana Gibson who specialised in glamorous fashionable Edwardian "Gibson Girls" but his signature was completely different and there was a French graphic postcard artist from the 1920's who signed "S Gibson" whose subjects were Mabel Lucy Attwell type cute children.
