A rare fashion sketch lithograph titled, 'Velvet Draped Skirt' from the 1948 movie "The Great Sinner" staring Ava Gardner and Gregory Peck.

Extensive material was available including bound volumes of Women's Home Companion and Godey's Fashion Plates. The litograph includes the title of the motion picture "The Great Sinner" and includes signatures from Irene, Virginia Fisher, producer Gottfried Reihardt and director Robert Siodmak. The lithograph is a limited edition #128/400, printed on archival quality 100% rag paper and it also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
BIO: Irene Getz, known simply as “Irene” was MGM’s golden girl as far as costume design went during the 1940’s and 50’s. During that time Irene designed for over 50 films, as well as supervising the personal wardrobes of top stars. As executive designer, Irene had privileges which were not extended to the other designers there. One of these was having a full time artist to sketch her designs. This special role was given to Virginia Fisher. Irene’s creative eye married perfectly with Virginia’s exceptional artistic ability. The 2 worked together for 5 years before Irene left MGM to establish her own retail business. These two women greatly contributed to what is called the “Golden Era” of film.
