Original drawing in colors depicting Celeste Holm's role as Evelina in bloomers holding a parasol, signed "Miles White" at lower right. 12 x 5 1/2 inches. Framed.
A rare original Miles White design for Bloomer Girl. This is an important design as it Celeste Holm would appear in a photograph on the cover the playbill in this costume, similarly raising a parasol, and a similar drawing by White again depicting Evelina in this costume was reproduces on the large format program and sheet music. Original Miles White artwork is a scarce and we trace few from this important period as unfortunately most of Miles White's original costume drawings were lost in a warehouse fire. A design titled "5 Daughters" from Bloomer Girl is in the collection of the Cooper Hewitt Museum.
