BROOKS, DONALD Two original fashion designs, including one for The Great Gatsby.
[N.p.: n.d.]. Two signed pencil and watercolor drawings comprising Mia Farrow as Daisy Buchanan [in] "The Great Gatsby," the drawing depicting Daisy in a "wispy delicate dress" and providing a full length version before a moonlit sky in colors and detail drawings of the shoes and jewelry, signed lower right. Visible area 19 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches (50 x 37 cm); framed. Some original smudging of pencil writing, a few spots; and Dance a Little Closer, the pencil and watercolor drawing depicting the Cynthia character in a full length pink/peach gown with a second drawing depicting the back of the gown, signed lower right. Visible area 19 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches (50 x 37 cm); framed. Some spotting.
Donald Brooks was the costume designer for the 1983 production of Dance a Little Closer. While Theoni V. Aldredge is listed as the costume designer of the 1974 film version of The Great Gatsby, it is feasible that perhaps Brooks assisted in the artwork, and we locate another sketch of Farrow by Brooks in his papers at The New School.
