Years ago Vogue used to be quite an interesting magazine. My wife subscribed to it and I got to admire and appreciate the work of René Bouché, who appeared with great frequency in the magazine. These go back to the mid-1950s, I believe. They are reproduced here as purely instructional with no intent whatsoever to infringe on the copyright, per sections of the U.S. copyright law that allow for the instructional use of such material. There are several more Bouché images on the Condé Nast art website. Click on this link.
This is Julie Harris, grand dame of the American stage, from the issue of 1 April 1954.
This is a good link to more work by René Robert Bouché. He was a Czech who emigrated to France and served in the French army during World War II, then arrived in the USA in 1941, was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1942 and became an American citizen thereafter. He taught at the Art Students League in New York City.
