René Gruau

April 22, 2012

I often receive birthday cards with René Gruau’s designs printed on them. I love the illustrations so much that I decided to blog about my favourite few. For me, it is the deep colours and accurate precision that makes the paintings so wonderful to look at, they are easy on the eye and are the perfect representation of elegance and refinement. Gruau was well known for his artistic representations of haute couture shows during the 40’s and 50’s, but especially for his link with the house of  Dior, in which Gruau was the artistic director, responsible for advertising. Once I started to accumilate pictures I could not stop, each one is just as beautiful as the previous!
