Eduardo García Benito (Valladolid, 1891 - Id., 1981) studied at the Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid before obtaining a scholarship that allowed him to move to Paris in 1911. He exhibited at the Salon and the Salon des Tuileries in 1923. He worked for fashion illustration and advertising, which experienced a new boom in the 1920s. Like Jean Dupas or Bertrand Boutet de Monvel, who practiced this same genre, he stayed in the United States during the interwar period. He designed covers for Vogue or Vanity Fair, whose stylization of forms, with cubist references, assimilated him to the Art Deco movement. But Benito explores other formal avenues and this study of a dancer seeks movement through the stylization of the human form and the use of color, evoking more the works of the Italian Futurists of the 1910s.
