Gruau: Portraits of Men


Free Shipping + Free Returns

Our Take On It 

Primarily known for his colorful and vivacious portrayals of women, René Gruau revolutionized the concept of masculinity in fashion imagery and advertising from the 1950s to the ’80s, depicting the modern casual, confident man with humor and sex appeal—including images of partial male nudity that were considered shocking at the time.

The reader is able to view previously unpublished work, taken from several of Gruau’s personal sketchbooks, and receives a true lesson in fashion history.
