Carl Erickson (1891 - 1958) was a renowned fashion illustrator and advertising artist. He is especially well known for this work for Vogue and Coty cosmetics. From around 1917, he usually signed his work “Eric”, the name he is most known by in the fashion and illustration world.

Eric was a hard-working man, a very serious artist who was usually practicing when not actually performing. For every piece of work reproduced in the magazines he has made dozens of studies. In spare moments he was usually busy drawing or painting from the model – he never drew without a model – and his sketchbook went with him to the restaurant and the theatre.
