Tony Viramontes Bold, beautiful and damned

8th september 2019 - 10th november 2019

10 Corso Como Gallery and Fondazione Sozzani present Tony Viramontes: bold, beautiful and damned, an overview of Viramontes’ iconic fashion illustrations, mixed media collages, and photographs from the 1980s curated by fashion journalist Dean Rhys Morgan. The exhibition is on view from September 8th through November 10th, 2019.

 

When Tony Viramontes’ work appeared in the late 1970s, it was very different from the work of his contemporaries. “Tony was the enfant terrible of fashion illustration. His strong and direct drawing style was a marked contrast to the whispered, pastelly, WASPy visuals of the time,” Rhys Morgan says. “There was an insolence about his women. They were very hard and aggressive. Casting was very important to him. The last thing he wanted was a pretty face and a standard set of measurements.”
