np [New York?]: [ca. 1955]. 18 large completed (plus 6 smaller) loose portraits executed in pen & ink with watercolor or guache on paper. Large works all approx. 19" x 12"; smaller 12.5" x 9". With a large 17" x 12" spiral-bound artist's notebook containing eight additional color studies, plus one sketch. Also includes 18 other loose preliminary works, various sizes and media - including one brief series of Shakespearean costume design. Most SIGNED by the artist. Generally very good or better overall. (Item ID: 14112)

Lovely selection of original fashion art depicting various women's runway dresses, all ca. 1955. We have been unable to discover much about the artist, Mr. Leigh. But he was clearly an accomplished designer, colorist, and draftsman. We do know he was based in New York City and assume given the professional skill with which these works were executed that he likely worked in the industry, either for a designer or a fashion magazine. The portraits themselves are quintessentially post-war in their style and taste, clearly indebted to VOGUE and their artists. A beautiful primary collection of 1950s high fashion.
