Marguerite Sauvage

Marguerite Sauvage mines the crisp stylish line and color styles of the mid 20th Century, particularly the 1960’s, refines an hones them with a modern edge, and enlivens them with delicate applications of watercolor (or perhaps digital color meant to emulate watercolor).

Her illustrations have appeared in Elle, Cosmopolitan and Glamour, as well as in books for children’s publishers and in advertising for clients like Apple, Azzaro and Continental Airlines. She has also worked on animation for McDonalds, Paul and Joe, Sawaroski and Galeries Lafayette Service.

Her web site includes galleries of her work in animation, children’s, fashion and lifestyle. (I can’t give you direct links because the designer has chosen to consign the site to a pop-up window.)

Her drawings often display a nicely flowing line style reminiscent of Art Nouveau, which combines with the “60’s modern” charm to make them particularly appealing.

Her work is part of the La Femme group show currently at Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California (until June 3, 2008). The Gallery Nucleus site includes available prints of her work.
