Bernie Fuchs
Retro Blond Girl in Yellow with Binoculars at the beach

1960

$16,000

About

Bernie Fuchs is one of America's greatest illustrators. He captures the essence of a beautiful and glamorous beach girl done is a loose mid-century style. Notice how he describes the adjacent figures with just a few strokes to bring out their essence. To demonstrate how great this simple work is, out of a world population of 7.2 billion people, as a betting man, I would say there may be no other artist who could render a scene this good. The Art World is full of contemporary artists who knowingly or unknowingly have highjacked the styles of commercial artists. As a student of illustration history and as a former New York Advertising Agency Art Director I know the examples are vast. Perhaps, one day when the wider art community will become fully away of how great American illustrators of the Golden and Post-Golden era are. Then finally, we can put contemporary art in its proper perspective. Signed lower right. Fuchs was contributed to all the main magazines of his day including McCalls, Redbook, The Ladies Home Journal, Sports Illustrated. He painted portraits of several U.S. Presidents, including John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, as well as of such athletes and celebrities such as Muhammad Ali, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Ted Koppel and Katharine Hepburn. Work is unframed and on board.
