At any time there are few who give form and meaning to their generation. Patrick Nagel has created one of the most memorable archives of images to appear in the last four decades.
His emergence as one of the gifted few stemmed from his unique vision of the contemporary woman. Handling color with rare originality and freedom, he continually simplified his designs to greater effect.
His work embodies the roots of early 20th century graphic design while giving shape to current trends in fashion and music.
