// JOHN ROMBOLA //
John Rombola is an artist that has created an entire visual world uniquely his own that becomes an intoxicating journey as you examine his images. His work evokes the spirit of some of the outstanding illustrators of the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s including Andy Warhol and Saul Steinberg. John Rombola’s work not only exemplifies the best work of that period, but has remained relevant to the present in its quirky, amusing, and penetrating reflection of society, human nature, politics, fashion, and other subjects that attract his interest. There have been three books published on his work, the most recent an outstanding two hundred seventy page publication by Chronicle Books. His book was followed by a riveting series of windows at Bergdorf Goodman based on his work that attracted overwhelming public enthusiasm and which were held over as a result of the response.
His work has appeared regularly in notable magazines over the years that include in particular Town & Country, Holiday, and Horizon. He continues to illustrate for Town & Country, and his images invite present generations to become captivated by them. His work is also held in the collections of the Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Cooper-Hewitt Design Archives, The Hirschhorn Museum, The Metropolitan Museum, and The Fashion Institute of technology, Doubleday, RCA, The United Hospital Fund, and others.
