Product Description

Zito (1900-1966) was a talented artist most famous for his caricatures of the celebrities he encountered throughout his life in both Europe and America, primarily working in Paris and Palm Beach. Original sketchbook used by famed caricaturist Vincenzo Maria Zito during the 1930s and 40s while in Paris, measuring approximately 8 x 10.5, containing over 80 caricatures of celebrities and notables, many of them signed by the subject. This signature is guaranteed to pass authentication or your money back. Jack Donohue started as a dancer in the Ziegfeld Follies, continued as a dancer, dance director and dance teacher for tap dance (most prominent pupil: Eleanor Powell) in New York and in London (he starred in the British film Rhythm in the Air (1936) with his wife Tutta Rolf). He began working in Hollywood in 1933 as a choreographer and dance director, and was president of the Dance Directors Guild from 1945-46. He also worked as a director, mainly for MGM, directing musicals and comedies. He died in 1984. The inside cover of the sketch book which contains Zito’s information has been imaged to this listing. HOWEVER, THIS COVER IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING WITH THE CARICATURE.
