Donyale Luna holds the distinction of being the first black model to appear on a cover of Vogue. Called “the reincarnation of Nefertiti” by surrealist artist Salvador Dali, Donyale travelled from America to London in 1965 and broke boundaries as the cover model of British Vogue in March 1966.
Donyale was also the first black woman to have a shop-window mannequin created in her image – just after the mannequin of Twiggy in 1966, Adel Rootstein released the Donyale version. As well as her career in fashion, the African-American model appeared in films by Dali, Andy Warhol, and Federico Fellini.
Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
This illustrated print is part of the new collection of stylish pop art prints, exclusively by Art & Hue, inspired by 1960s models and features Art & Hue’s signature halftone style (halftone is an age-old technique that uses dots to make up the printed image, similar to newspapers or comic books) along with graphic blocks of colour.
