Andy Warhol once called Joe Eula “the most important person in New York.” While the fashion illustrator certainly boasted impressive social laurels, it was his work that earned him such an enduring and impressive reputation. Educated at the Art Students League of New York, Eula made his entrance into the world of fashion by illustrating Eugenia Sheppard’s syndicated column, Inside Fashion, for The New York Herald Tribune. The artist soon became a titan of the industry, publishing his drawings in The New York Times, American Vogue, and Italian Harper’s Bazaar regularly. One of Eula’s most important relationships was with Yves Saint Laurent himself: the artist famously covered the designer’s first show in 1958 and his last in 2002.
