Description Here for your consideration is a wonderful mixed media fashion illustration by the world renowned fashion artist, Kenneth Paul Block. Signed with initials middle left. Circa 1955. Condition: Very good. Overall framed in custom gold leaf gallery frame 24 by 20 inches.

Kenneth Paul Block (1925–2009) is arguably the most important fashion illustrator of the second half of the 20th century. His versatility and ability to create a graceful gesture or evoke the high energy of the post–WWII generation make his work stand out among illustrators of his time. Throughout his career, mainly with Women’s Wear Daily and W Magazine, he chronicled fashionable designs and the lifestyles of the people who wore them. Blending illustration and portraiture, his drawings of figures like Jacqueline Kennedy, Babe Paley and Gloria Guinness capture the sophistication of the era’s socialites and celebrities.
