Gruau Impermeable Moderne Blizzand Eyes – Rene Gruau – 1964 –148 x 109cm – Original Lithographic Poster
When France refurbished its identity after the defeat and deprivation of the Second World War, two men were crucial to the re-establishment of the nation as global supplier of luxuries. One was the couturier Christian Dior, the other his chief visualiser, artist René Gruau, who died aged 95. Here we see the iconic eyes of Audrey Hepburn wearing a red Blizzand coat. It’s all in the eyes. Striking, iconic, and unforgettable.
