We've featured vast numbers of Mondrian-inspired goods over the years. The Courtauld Gallery, London is stocking an impressive amount of them for its current exhibition Mondrian Nicholson in Parallel including this new-to-us Mondrian cube.
Opening today at London's Somerset House is a new exhibition called Dior Illustrated. Subtitled René Gruau and the Line of Beauty it looks at the work of illustrator René Gruau who created iconic fashion imagery for Dior in the 1940s and 50s.
Gruau worked for some of the most famous couture houses and style magazines of the period but is best known for his collaboration with Christian Dior, for whom he created the marketing images for Dior's first perfume, Miss Dior, in 1947. The exhibition includes some of his illustrations for Dior parfums, alongside the original bottles. Gruau's fashion illustration remains influential today and there's the opportunity to see some of his sketches, alongside some of the haute couture dresses that inspired them, providing a glamorous snapshot of the era.
The exhibition runs until 9 January. Tickets cost £6, with concessions at £5.
