Kenneth Paul Block Exhibition

In 2018 Alamance Arts and the Wooten Family Endowment will host an exhibition of original fashion illustrations by Kenneth Paul Block (1925 – 2009), arguably the most important fashion illustrator of the second half of the 20th century. For nearly 40 years Block was the house artist for Women’s Wear Daily and W magazine. In addition to that position, he held long-term commissions as an illustrator for Bonwit Teller, Bergdorf Goodman and Lord and Taylor. It is said that he, more than any single illustrator, gave New York fashion its sophistication. He sketched the social elite like the Duchess of Windsor, Babe Paley, Gloria Vanderbilt, Lauren Bacall, Sophia Lauren and Catherine Deneuve. At fashion shows, collection previews and the Paris couture, Mr. Block sketched the works of designers like Geoffrey Beene, Bill Blass, Oscar de le Renta, Perry Ellis, Pierre Cardin, Givenchy and Coco Chanel. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston owns 1,844 pieces of Kenneth Paul Block work. The exhibition is on loan from the Kenneth Paul Block Foundation. Selections from the Block Foundation collection will be exhibited in 2017 in London, New York City and the Balenciaga Museum in Spain. Alamance Arts is the only North Carolina venue to exhibit the Kenneth Paul Block collection.
