Eduardo Benito (1891-1981) was an icon of the Art Deco era, a Spanish fashion illustrator and painter, noted for his Vogue covers of the 1920's and 1930's. However, it seems that magazine publishing magnate Condé Nast kept Benito busy designing covers for Vanity Fair when he wasn't producing Vogue covers.
He studied at the Mignon studio, and later trained under Daniel Vierge. In 1912 he moved to Paris, he later spent 15 years painting Vogue covers. Among Benito's subjects as a portrait painter were Alfonso XIII of Spain, Paul Poiret, and the Chinese Royal family. Also in 1912, he won a scholarship to study at L’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. buy prints by Eduardo Benito here at artrepublic.
