The Line of Fashion
Works by legendary illustrators curated by Robert W. Richards
The charming and dapper Robert led us through the exhibit and he had an extensive recall and knowledge of the history of illustration and the artists their nuances and their achievements.
Robert's illustration of Patrick McDonald
Robert mentioned that here Patrick is wearing Night and Day cuff links, commissioned by Linda Porter, for Cole Porter. They were a present to Cole upon the release of his song "Night and Day".
Robert also told me that one of my favorite illustrators Antonio Lopez was colorblind and his partner Juan did all the coloring. I was so happy to catch the show-today was the last day!
Here are some of my favorites:
Carlos Aponte-masking tape on board
Steven Broadway "J'Adore Coco"
Bil Donovan "Setarium Coutoure" gouache,
charcoal and pastel on Fabriano Classico paper
