The artist's narrative:

THE LITTLE FOXES — 1981 heralded the arrival of the world’s most publicized movie star making her Broadway debut. As a starstruck pre-teen, I became obsessed with Elizabeth Taylor ever since watching her mega-epic, Cleopatra, on the big screen at New York City’s Rivoli Theatre. I learned she was rehearsing at the Martin Beck just down the street—and I wanted desperately to design the artwork for her show. Lillian Hellman’s play is set in a small Alabama town in 1900.

My first thoughts went to my favorite American illustrator of that period, Charles Dana Gibson. His stylish pen-and-ink illustrations created the personification of the feminine ideal of physical beauty that spanned the late 19th and early 20th centuries in the United States. Channeling his technique, I sketched Elizabeth Taylor as Hellman’s main character, Regina Giddens. Unfortunately, a rival ad agency was representing the production, so my heartfelt efforts quickly fell by the wayside.
