MICHAEL JOHNSON

White Leotard with Red Spot

c. 1965, acrylic on board

Johnson painted this and ‘White and Black Dress’ to pitch to art directors at fashion magazines. He presented the piece to Willie Landels, influential art director of Harpers & Queen, who created magazine’s distinctive aesthetic. Landels judged this piece ‘too like a work of art’ for fashion illustration, however, he commissioned other work from Johnson. The two became lifelong friends.

The original board size is approximately 52 cm tall by 45 cm wide.
