Catalogue Note

The Australian born Orry-Kelly is one of the most celebrated costume designers of Hollywood’s Golden Age. Working on hundreds of productions, he was chief costume designer at Warner Bros. from 1932-44, and was nominated for four Academy Awards, winning three for An American in Paris, Les Girls and Some Like it Hot. Vivien knew and was friends with Orry-Kelly, and may have acquired the present work and Flowers in a Glass Vase (lot 155) directly from him.
