Inspirations : Eduardo Garcìa Benito, cubism and Egyptian Art
The Spanish illustrator Eduardo Garcìa Benito (1891-1981) was a major figure of the Art Deco movement (1920s/1930s). He collaborated with several fashion magazines such as Vogue, Gazette du bon ton, Le goût du jour, Femina or Vanity Fair. He was one of the principal illustrators of Vogue in the 1920s and 1930s. He drew women in an abstract way, not realistic. He was inspired by the cubism and by the painter Modigliani. Benito depicted streamlined women with a very long and large neck, a face like a mask, an oval head, very stretched eyes and a red fleshy mouth (Cupid’s bow).
