‘Gruau’s women are not gamines and never pinups,” Gilles de Bure wrote in ”Gruau,” a biography published here in 1989. ”They stroll along the Avenue Montaigne, the paths of the Bagatelle, the Croisette in Cannes. They float, they appear, they disappear as if they had neither body nor flesh.”

René Gruau, an Italian-born artist who made his name in Paris and New York as an illustrator for fashion houses, women’s magazines, nightclubs and ballet companies.

René Gruau astounds us simply by the immensity of his work, his modernity, his simplicity and his utter elegance.

He is a virtuoso performer of the greatest names in fashion, the most prestigious brands, the most colourful shows. but the artist has the elegance to stay behind his works. His talent and his highly personal style shine through…

In the 1990’s there were exhibitions of his work in Germany, Japan, Monaco and France. The largest retrospective was organized by the Advertising Museum in Paris in 1999. It was called, simply, ”Passionately Gruau.”
