Kenneth Paul Block Art

KENNETH PAUL BLOCK (USA, 1924–2009)

Kenneth Paul Block is arguably the most important fashion illustrator of the second half of the 20th century. His versatility and ability to create a graceful gesture or evoke the high energy of the post–World War II generation make his work stand out among illustrators of his time. Throughout Block’s career, mainly with Women’s Wear Daily and W Magazine, he chronicled fashionable designs and the lifestyles of the people who wore them. Blending illustration and portraiture, his drawings of figures like Jacqueline Kennedy, Babe Paley and Gloria Guinness capture the sophistication of the era’s socialites and celebrities.
