From the dustjacket:
With his fluid lines, graceful poses, and bold use of color, Rene Gruau was a master at conveying fashion's sensual promise to women. A close friend and associate of Givenchy, Dior, and other stars of the Paris fashion scene, this unprepossessing, entertaining artist worshipped women almost as he did the glamorous life in which he portrayed them. A spirited blend of the comic, Pop Art, and classical drawing, Gruau's art shaped the New Look of the 50s and helped revive Paris haute couture.
With more than 100 colorful drawings from Gruau's numerous fashion spreads in Harpers Bazaar and Vogue and from his advertising campaigns for Dior and other designers, this beautiful, oversized monograph features the highlights of a stellar career that spanned four decades.
