$ 15,000
  • Description
    Dick Stone was a top mid-century illustrator who worked for the most famous brands. He was an assignment artist hired by such esteemed Ad Agencies as BBDO and the top newsstand magazines of the day. This portrait of top model Sara Thom exhibits Stone's artistic and creative talents. It is beautifully rendered and designed and exudes 50's elegance. The poster-like illustration is composed of high-contrast black and white except for the face - where the artist inserts splashes of color. This exceptional work is an icon of the quintessential 50's American women and the epitome of glamour.
    Signed lower right Dick Stone.
    Richard F. Stone (1925
    "studied both at the New York Art Students League and at Yale University, where he earned a B.F.A. His paintings are assured and subtle, carefully simplified, always in good taste. He successfully combines the traditional accomplishments of good drawing and academic painting that holds its own with contemporary techniques"
    -- Walter Reed "The Illustrator in America" (New York: The Society of Illustrator, 2001).
