Description - Antonio's People by Paul Caranicas

Antonio Lopez (1943-1987) is the Picasso of fashion illustration. An unparalleled virtuoso, he captured the pulse of style at ground zero from the Sixties to the Eighties. Recording and predicting contemporary style trends, he also used his omnivorous versatility to adopt a broad range of art movements in his work, from Pop Art to Surrealism. His illustrations, interspersed with his photographs, of the beautiful people who are part of celebrity folklore - the 15-year-old Jerry Hall, whom he discovered, Grace Jones, Mick Jagger, Faye Dunaway, Paloma Picasso, Jackie Kennedy - make this a thrilling retrospective, packed with unpublished as well as published material. For anyone involved in fashion professionally or as a student, but also for anyone wanting to share the excitement of the raw reality of life at the creative and celebrity edge in the Sixties and Seventies, this is the perfect volume.
