how out of it I am! He was a famous fashion illustrator who has only just passed away(2004). He drew for all the fashion houses in Paris (such as Christian Dior) and New York and all of the mags
including Vogue. His main function was as an illustrator for advertising but his work is considered outstanding on it’s own merits. There are elements of Japanese art in his work
and you can also see the influence of Toulouse-Lautrec. I love the way he captures form with just a simple line.
