The Art of Oscar

I’ve been meaning to post about Al Held's large scale expressionist black and white paintings for quite some time but never got around to it…then I saw Oscar de la Renta’s Resort collection – with its bold patterns and beautifully structured shapes – and couldn’t help but notice a resemblance. Uncanny, no?  I love how both Held's paintings and Oscar's prints are modern yet work so well with classic, tailored pieces. This fusion of modern and elegant is a dazzling combination I just can’t seem to get enough of...

  1. Wow, total resemblance. Love Al Held's work!

  2. That is something! I love how art inspires the next.
