Drawing on Style; fashion illustration exhibits in NYC fine art space

London-based fashion illustration gallery Gray M.C.A has brought a capsule of their lauded 2021 Drawing on Style exhibition to New York City. Hosted by Didier Aaron gallery, as part of the Master Drawings New York event, and running for one week only, the show features work by contemporary illustrators such as David Downton, Jason Brooks and Bil Donovan alongside past greats such as Antonio, Carl Erickson and René Gruau.

The works span from the 1940s through to today and, says Gray M.C.A co-founder, Connie Gray, “shows the evolution of the genre as a discipline.” The mission of Gray M.C.A, which was founded fifteen years ago, is to show fashion illustration as fine art and indeed the space it occupies within Master Drawings includes works by Rubens, Picasso, and Goya.
