HUF X NAGEL

PATRICK NAGEL (NOVEMBER 25, 1945 – FEBRUARY 4, 1984) WAS AN AMERICAN ARTIST KNOWN PRIMARILY FOR HIS FOCUS ON WOMEN AND THE FEMALE FORM. HE IS CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE ONE OF THE GIANTS OF 20TH CENTURY AMERICAN ILLUSTRATION AND GRAPHIC DESIGN. NAGEL WAS BORN IN DAYTON, OHIO, BUT WAS RAISED AND SPENT MOST OF HIS LIFE IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA WHERE HE FIRST ESTABLISHED HIMSELF AS A FREE-LANCE DESIGNER AND ILLUSTRATOR FOR CLIENTS SUCH AS IBM, BALLANTINE SCOTCH, AND HARPER’S MAGAZINE. IN THE MID-70S, HE BEGAN REGULARLY ILLUSTRATING STORIES FOR PLAYBOY MAGAZINE, WHICH EXTENDED THE EXPOSURE AND POPULARITY OF HIS ICONIC “NAGEL WOMAN” TO A LARGE AND LOYAL AUDIENCE. HE PRODUCED HIS FIRST POSTER IMAGE FOR MIRAGE EDITIONS IN 1978, AND WOULD GO ON TO PAINT THE COVER ART FOR ROCK GROUP DURAN DURAN’S TOP-SELLING RIO ALBUM RELEASED IN 1982. NAGEL’S MINIMALIST STYLE IS SAID TO HAVE DEFINED AN ERA WITH COOL, SEDUCTIVE WOMEN THAT SIMULTANEOUSLY EMBODY THE MORE EMPOWERED WOMAN OF THE TIMES, REFLECTING THE RAPIDLY CHANGING ROLE OF WOMEN IN AMERICA. HIS PROCESS INVOLVED STARTING FROM A PHOTOGRAPH AND THEN WORKING THE IMAGE DOWN INTO A SIMPLIFIED PAINTING BY REMOVING ELEMENTS HE FELT WERE UNNECESSARY WHILE EMPHASIZING THOSE ASPECTS THAT WERE IMPORTANT TO HIM. THE RESULTING WORKS EXHIBIT BOLD, DARK LINES THAT SHAPE PERSPECTIVE OUT OF FLAT, COOL COLORS AND STARK WHITE SPACES, REMINISCENT OF JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINTS AND ART DECO STYLING. AT THE FOREFRONT OF A NEW WAVE OF ILLUSTRATION IN LOS ANGELES DURING HIS TIME, NAGEL’S WORK HELPED INSPIRE CURRENT TRENDS IN FASHION AND MUSIC, AND CONTINUES TO RESONATE WITH GENERATIONS OF CONTEMPORARY DESIGNERS, ILLUSTRATORS, AND ARTISTS.
