John Rombola: Eclectic Eccentric

John Rombola: Eclectic Eccentric

By Veronique Vienne,and Melissa Tardiff

John Rombola started his career illustrating for magazines, and his work frequently appeared in Life, Holiday, and Town & Country. Recently rediscovered by a new generation of art and design lovers, John Rombola's rambunctious, spirited art is gathered in this first-ever comprehensive monograph of his work. Art and cultural critic Veronique Vienne explores Rombola's career through selections from his most well-known series,including his line drawings of the New York skyline, his scintillating take on Manhattan's society women, and lush gouache and ink drawings from his travels, both real and imagined, to the tropics and to Europe. Lively and often funny, the drawings in this volume reveal the spirited style of an eccentric artist who moves to his own, whimsical rhythm. Rombola works primarily in gouache and ink on paper; his art is in the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum.
