1972 44th Personal Annual Acadamy Awards First Draft Book & Invitation (John DeCuir Collection)
John DeCuir was an Academy Award winning Hollywood Art Director and production designer. In total he had 11 Oscar nominations with three wins for: The King and I (1956), Cleopatra (1963) and Hello, Dolly! (1969). He started his work in the 1930s as a sketch artist for films. He spent time at Universal (1938-49) and 20th Century Fox (1949-62).
He was known for his own watercolor paintings that were transformed into elaborate big budget set designs. He also worked in theatrical design, operas and designing theme parks. His artistry led to an induction into the Art Director's Hall of Fame in 2004. We are fortunate to present many items that came out of his personal collection.
