Artist Research- J.c Leyendecker

I found this artist when exploring different eras of fashion and fashion illustration.What was interesting was that his art work was male dominated and was known mostly for advertisement and magazine. All his characters are of domineering and regal appearance denoting wealth and importance. One piece which really struck me was a piece with an ornate gold frame, which immediately expresses ideas of wealth and class. Thinking about frames, I realised that exploring this as part of my project could add more symbolism to my pieces.
