n.p. (c. 1932). A nice collection of five original artist's fashion mockup sketches, probably created for catalog use. All are executed in a combination of pencil, ink and guache onto thick, blind stamped "Strathmore Drawing Board" with three boards measuring 23 wide x 29 inches tall, one 17 wide x 29 inches tall and one 14.5 wide x 11.5 inches tall. All are works in progress, having both artist and production notes, date and time stamps, soil (especially verso) and multiple finger prints from much handling and use with the occasional pin hole and one sketch having some paint splatters and an 1-1/2 inch closed tear to the foot - not affecting image. With the rubber stamp of "Robert Simpson Company" to one sketch and others with date stamps of 1932 and 1933. Good. Item #1822
A study of the creation process of a 20th century fashion artist, as seen through their sketches, portraying some of the hottest emerging fashions in the early 1930's. Designed for the Robert Simpson Company, a successful department store chain founded by Robert Simpson in 1858.
