Rene Gruau, (1909-2004) was born Renato Zavagli in Rimini Italy on February 4, 1909. He was a one of the most important graphic designers in the second part of the 20th Century. Designing posters for the Lido and Moulin Rouge in Paris and for large Advertisers ie: Air France, Cinzano and Vichy mineral water. He worked closely with Dior fashions, and worked with Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Elle, and Le Figaro Madame and other journals of the time.
Son of an Italian count, and his mother was French. He used his mothers maiden name nom de plume as an Artist. His mother had a great influence on his interest in the World of fashion being involved in Haute Couture. His Illustrations were printed by Lidel as early as in 1924 in Italy. He worked as a clothes designer for a while in London.
In 1947, Christian Dior invited Gruau to design for Dior and create Ms Dior fragrance. Gruau continued the relationship with Dior and worked with many fashion houses as well. Art nouveau and Japanese prints that influenced the impressionists also had a great influence on his body of work. Gruau continued working for Dior and many others right up until the end of his life.
We are happy have for sale a great body of his Lido, Moulin Rouge, Dior, Rimini and Bemberg and Desastre series. We are finding more posters all the time so do check back.
In the World of graphic art, Gruau is one of the most collectable artists of the last 50 years.
