Guillermo dE Osma

Guillermo de Osma is an art historian, founder of the eponymous gallery in Madrid, and the world’s foremost specialist on Mariano Fortuny. He is also professor at Spain’s Instituto Superior de Moda and has written numerous articles and books. His book Fortuny: His Life and Work is a comprehensive monograph that captures the fashions, art, and fantasy of one of the world’s most original fashion designers. Born in Spain and raised in Paris, Fortuny is most associated with Venice—he was often called the “magician of Venice”—where he lived and worked at the legendary Palazzo Fortuny until his death in 1949. Through archival and previously unpublished material, de Osma will explore Fortuny’s legendary designs.
