The elegance of the drawing
The museum Casal Solleric in Palma hosts until 24th of March the exhibition The elegance of drawings. Paris Chronicle by Carlos Sáenz de Tejada, a selection of the drawings by the artist from Tanger. The ABC Museum of Drawing and Illustration has organized this exhibition together with the Casal Solleric, collecting over 200 drawings, many of them devoted to fashion. The illustrations chosen belong to the stay of Tejada in Paris between 1931 and 1936, a decade which revolutionized fashion with the unique creations of Coco Chanel and Elsa Schiaparelli, among other fashion designers.
Tejada witnessed fashion shows by big fashion houses and illustrated lots of articles published by ABC and Blanco y negro (Black and White). The exhibition is divided into seven sections that allow the visitor to appreciate the evolution of fashion in the thirties and may approach the artwork from a thematic point of view.
