The work of Eduardo Garcia Benito epitomizes unique beauty and sensibility. Garcia Benito shared his desires and beliefs with the most significant artistic movements, first in Paris and then in New York. These two cities have left their stamp all over his work. His illustrations of women often featured long, delicate necks, resembling the paintings of Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, a friend of Benito's while in Paris.
His work includes paintings, illustrations for books and international fashion magazines as he was one of the most important artist of Vogue and Vanity Fair. His style definitively captures the spirit of art deco.
During his late years he returned to Spain and died in his country but his work still looks so modern.
