Hearst Magazines Introduces the Esquire Art Collection
(Press Release) New York (October 12, 2011)—The Esquire Art Collection, a unique offering of illustrations and photographs reproduced from Esquire's vast archives, will premiere at the High Point International Home Furnishings Market, October 22nd - 27th, 2011 in the Trowbridge showroom located in C & D Building, suite 2G. The announcement was made today by Glen Ellen Brown, vice president, Hearst Brand Development, a unit of Hearst Magazines (which publishes Esquire), and Martin Trowbridge, founder of Trowbridge.
"Men are expressing more interest in their desire to create an ultimate living space," said Glen Ellen Brown, vice president, Hearst Brand Development. "The new art collection offers a range of aesthetics to suit the interests, sophistication and unique personality of any Esquire man."
The Esquire Art Collection marks the first time the iconic men's magazine has made illustrations and photographs available for purchase. Since its first issue in 1933, Esquire has been the authority for modern, sophisticated men on topics ranging from politics and sports to style, cars, women, and popular culture. The Esquire Art Collection reflects those diverse interests with a variety of framed photographs, illustrations, and sketches, and it celebrates the work of influential artists whose depictions were integral to the magazine in its early years. Each framed reproduction is ready to display and designed to style seamlessly with the Esquire Home Collection.
Featuring five distinct series' of witty, timeless and entertaining works of art, the collection includes:
The Pin-Up Series: Designed for Esquire magazine by renowned artist Alberto Vargas, this series embodies the glamour and sophisticated sex appeal of the 40's pin-up girl. Although closely identified with the World War II era, the images also have a contemporary appeal. Their enduring and simple beauty has allowed the collection to be recognized as an important part of American culture.
The Photo Series: This photography series conveys the stylish sophistication of the Esquire man. Curated by the editors at Esquire magazine, the collection expresses the lifestyle and interests of the modern man, from industry to the arts.
