About the Artist: Rene Gruau (ITALIAN) 1909-2004 - With his stunning, passionate, figures, his arresting use of color and dramatic, explosive element of line, Rene Gruau developed his distinctive “New Look” in the 1940’s which greatly impacted haute couture, theatre, art, and commercial design.
He worked for magazines like Harper's Bazaar and Vogue in the US, Femina, Marie Claire, L'Officiel, L'Album du Figaro and other well known publication in France as well as for internationally known organizations like the Moulin Rouge and Bemberg.
With Rene Gruau's trademark use of his powerful minimal line, his style combined seductive sophistication with classic beauty, grace and sensual elegance. The quality of the visual appeal of Gruau's glamorous and radiant “beautiful people” is at once bold and languid. Gruau’s artwork is celebrated internationally, noted for its exceptional and masterful line, its timelessness, and enduring style. Today Gruau’s works are collected and exhibited by the finest art institutions including the Louvre in Paris. (various sources). This poster is lined and in excellent condition.
