  • About the Product
  • About the Artist
(Spanish, 1891-1953) Born in Valladolid, Spain. A portrait painter, decorative artist and illustrator, his artwork graced the cover of Vogue over ninety times between 1921 and 1940. Benito used the pochoir technique. The technique, which results in remarkable depth of color, uses stencils cut from thin sheets of metal or thick paper in conjunction with hand coloration. It was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for use on Art Deco-style fashion plates. Condé Nast asked Benito to redesign the look of his magazines in the late 1920s. In the spirit of modernism that permeated throughout the arts at the time, Benito instituted sans-serif typefaces and did away with the decorative borders, known as "cabbage" in the publishing business that surrounded photographs and illustrations. In 1929, Benito famously turned down an offer to become art director for all of the Nast titles. Instead, he packed up his belongings and went home to Spain to become a sheep farmer.

  • Eduardo Garcia Benito's anonymous icon, a flapper in a red cloche who graced Vogue's July 15, 1926, cover, has been stylishly reproduced on this generously sized limited-edition beach towel. Benito’s most famous illustrations were a series of Modiglianiesque elongated faces and necks, which came to be known as the Big Heads. These Art Deco, almost surreal, depictions dominated Vogue covers in the late 1920s, when artistic license was favored over more commercial fashion-focused designs. Out this month—in time for resort-beach sojourns and holiday giving—the towel is the result of a collaboration between the magazine and the luxury-linen purveyor D. Porthault, and commemorates 120 years of Vogue’s publication. Towel dimensions- 45"x69"
